Green Goddess Pasta

Catch you on the flip side, red sauce. Tonight we’re having green goddess pasta. It’s bright, fresh, salty and creamy all at once, and with just 11 ingredients, a cinch to make.

The sauce is similar to pesto in how it’s made, but the garlicky, herby flavors are reminiscent of green goddess dressing (hence the name). The exact mix of herbs you use doesn’t need to be precise, but a combination of tarragon, basil and chives is a good place to start.
