Pesto pasta is one of my favorite quick and easy dishes to make. This pasta tastes great with the homemade pesto of roasted almonds, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. I like to use pappardelle pasta for this recipe, but you can use any kind you have on hand!
Calories are a unit of energy. We need it to stay warm, move around and control other processes in our bodies. It is important to take in enough energy (calories) to keep your body functioning optimally. If you eat more than you use, you can either gain or lose weight if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are.
