Creamy Corn Basil Pesto Pasta

I keep trying and experimenting with different recipes for Pasta by introducing new flavours to it because my daughter is an ardent Pasta fan. After making the Basil Pesto a few days back, cooking pasta was the first thing which came into my mind. I tried making this Corn Basil Pesto Pasta the other day, and it came out very creamy, flavourful. We enjoyed it for breakfast and it’s going to be a regular thing in my kitchen. The recipe is easy and can be done in a jiffy. I hope you’ll enjoy cooking it. 🙂
