Homemade Vegetarian Ramen Recipe
Homemade Vegetarian Ramen Recipe I love any kind of noodles but after living in Hawaii for many years, I am quite the ramen lover and connoisseur. I eat ramen at least once a week...
This Kale Pesto Pasta Recipe post is sponsored, however, the opinions expressed are my own.
Cheese is one of my favorite things to eat. I love it, I love it, I love it! I sincerely believe that everything really does taste better with cheese. For me, it is important that I use authentic Italian cheese when preparing meals for my family as there really is a difference in texture and most importantly – flavor. We hope that you love our Kale Pesto Pasta Recipe.
I was in the mood for pasta with cheese this evening (I’m always in the mood for pasta). With the ingredients I had in my refrigerator, I decided upon making an improvised version of pesto sauce. I also wanted to add additional flavor to the kale pesto pasta recipe, so I added authentic Italian Pecorino Romano and Asiago cheese. The mild and creamy taste of the Asiago added a whole other level of flavor to the pesto pasta dish that made it even more delicious.
Because of the hard texture and sharp & salty flavour, Pecorino Romano is an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes. I also like to include this in the pesto sauce itself, the salty flavor lets me omit adding salt. Recipe is below.
I always make sure that I use authentic Italian Pecorino Romano and Asiago cheese for the best flavor. You can tell if a brand is authentically Italian by making sure the letters PDO or PDI are on the label.
PDO stands for Protected Designation of Origin and PGI stands for (Protected Geographical Indication). These symbols guarantee the products are from the official place of origin (in this case, Italy) and that they adhere to strict production standards that have been in place for hundreds of years.

Make sure to look for authentic Italian cheese when preparing your favorite recipes for the best possible texture and flavor. Listed below is a little more detail on the authentic Italian cheese that I used for my recipe. We hope that you are inspired by our Kale Pesto Pasta Recipe. Mangiamo!
