I’m so excited to be hosting Round Two in the Stonyfield Virtual Cooking Party Series! I asked five of my sweet friends to join me and we each put a different spin on this beautiful dish of Pasta with Spinach Yogurt Pesto.
I’m a huge fan of pesto… not only the sauce in its entirety, but each of the ingredients that go into making it. The bright green basil leaves, the fresh garlic, the crunchy pine nuts and the cheesy Parmesan shreds. It’s so good, I could put it on everything. With this batch, I decided to change it up with the addition of spinach and Stonyfield’s plain Greek yogurt. Those two ingredients seriously took things over the top and now, I really could eat it straight from the bowl! But once it’s topped with Garlicky Shrimp, things get serious. So much yum on this plate, I tell ya!
With the other chefs, chicken was the most popular, as Kasey of Kasey’s Kitchen, Amy of Nifty Foodie and Jessica of Sunny Side Up added it to their pasta dishes. Kelsey of Apple A Day stuck to her Meatless Mondays menu by adding white beans and tomatoes to hers, and Krystal of Mrs. Regueiro’s Plate topped hers with a spicy sausage. So many amazing dishes to choose from, ladies! Thank you again for cooking along with me!!
I’ve always had a thing for yogurt, but with each Stonyfield flavor I try, I fall more in love with it every day. From smoothies to dips, baked goods to a plate of pesto-covered pasta, Stonyfield is a natural choice when it comes to good-for-you ingredients. Their yogurts, milks and butters are made without use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs. And with the USDA Organic seal, you can count on it.
So what’s a party without presents? Stonyfield is generously offering a case of yogurt and a Stonyfield cookbook to six lucky readers (one here and one at each of the blogs listed above)! After you complete the entry tasks below, head over to the blogs I mentioned earlier to enter their giveaways, as well! Good luck!
