Do I have to use angel hair pasta to make Pesto Pasta?

Definitely not.  We used angel hair because it’s a favorite with my kids, and because it is one of the fastest cooking pastas.  You can substitute any pasta you’d like, whether that’s bow ties, macaroni, linguine, or any other pasta.  Just follow the directions on the package to make sure you cook the pasta long enough.

Fast meals are a staple at my house.  I could bake all day long, because I love it, but come dinner time I just struggle with wanting to cook day after day.

Because of this, we’ve come up with a wide variety of quick dinners that can be made with minimal work.  Check these out:
