This 5-minute pesto cream sauce is genius: just simmer pesto and cream until a thick sauce forms! It’s perfect for serving with pasta or fish.
- 1/2 cup basil pesto
- 3/4 cup heavy cream*
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until it just starts to thicken, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Makes 1 cup, enough for 8 ounces of pasta. Mix it into pasta in a bowl, then add additional salt to taste.
*For a lower calorie version of this sauce, substitute whole or 2% milk.
