Basil Pesto Pasta with Cod

Urban Recipes

By Christina Jeffrey

Basil Pesto Pasta with Cod, a simple Friday night meal, but decadent enough to add a beautiful glass of wine and start the weekend off right. 

You can definitely call this pasta healthy with this homemade Basil Pesto and the addition of a beautiful fillet of cod. 

Make it gluten free if you wish with your favourite gluten free pasta and this could definitely be considered healthy! There is plenty of basil right now so what better way to enjoy it for a fall evening dinner.
