Southwestern Pesto Pasta


I love salsa.

It is true, I can literally eat it out of the jar with a spoon.

Years ago, I found this recipe (where escapes me) and thought I couldn't go wrong with combining a bunch of salsa with pasta!

The original recipe called for regular Parmesan cheese and oil.  I omitted the oil and changed to a Vegan Parmesan cheese that is easy to make at home.





I'm linking up today with Kimmy from Rock My Vegan Socks & Mary Ellen VNutrition for Healthy Vegan Fridays and Running on Happy, The Fit Foodie Mama, Confessions of a Mother Runner, and A Whisk and Two Wands for #MeatlessMonday!

  1. Yum! I love anything pesto! Your take with the salsa making it southwestern looks so tasty!

    I'll need to try this soon while all the basil is still around this season. :)

  2. I feel the same way about salsa! Love the addition of it in the pasta. Thanks for linking up today for meatless Monday

  3. Loving this, and umm is eating salsa out of the jar wrong? Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday!

  4. This sounds so good! I am not a huge pesto fan and this sounds like a better way of enjoying it =) I also LOVE salsa - it's so good!!!! My husband likes it too but is sensitive to corn (and corn chips!) and I've been struggling with fun ways to incorporate salsa into a meal. This is it!
    Thanks so much for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays. I'm pinning & sharing. I hope you are having a great week =)

  5. Interesting combo! Thanks for linking up!

  6. If it is wrong... I don't want to be right :-)
