Spaghetti with Garlic Scape Pesto with Tomatoes




A quick summer pasta with ingredients you can find in your own backyard if you are lucky!

If you can't find garlic scapes, you can make the pesto by substituting 2-3 cloves of garlic and an additional cup of basil.

    4. @Emina - This recipe is 6 points for each serving. The points are per serving, not for the entire recipe.
