Low Carb Penne Pasta in Pesto-Cream Sauce

Time: 15 mins


  • 16 ounces low-carb pasta
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto (found in refrigerator section by fresh herbs)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 8 ounces heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1 Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain. HINT - save 1/4 cup pasta water to add to pasta later if it needs more liquid.
  • 2 Stir all other ingredients into hot pasta, saving a little of the Parmesan to sprinkle on top. If the dish seems too dry, you can add a little of the reserved pasta water (the starch in that water helps to bind the sauce).
  • 3 A nice variation is to toss in about 20 grape tomatoes (split in half first) as you toss all the ingredients. They add wonderful color and flavor.
