What to do with that pesto pasta?

A friend of mine who loves our Tofu Yu pesto pasta (she's purchased it multiple times and she ends up eating it right out of the bag) asked me recently what you're actually supposed to do with it. Well, the answer is basically- "Whatever you want." And I'm not being sarcastic.

It's great right out of the package or on top of a salad, mixed in with a salad, etc. Maybe you put it on a plate (cold) and garnish it with fresh parsley, tomatoes, or walnuts.

Or, you may want to heat it up and enjoy it that way: you can steam it, pop it into the microwave (first empty it out of the bag and put it in a glass container; always avoid plastic in microwaves, in spite of what the label may tell you), or you can add a tiny bit of water (just enough to keep it from sticking) and heat it up quickly in a saucepan, or you can add it to a stir fry. In any event, don't overcook, Tofu Yu pasta is fully cooked and ready to eat. All you need to do is heat it up.

Last night I sauteed some shitake mushrooms, onions, garlic, leftover broccoli, threw in the pesto pasta, stirred it all just long enough for the tofu pasta to get hot, then I sat myself down to a quick and wonderful dinner. I almost threw in some cherry tomatoes to add a bit of red to the green (it's the season, after all), but saved those for my salad.

It was tasty, easy, and FAST! Get creative, and have fun. :-)
