Mushroom and Pea Pesto Fettuccine

I live for a good pesto pasta! I am not a red sauce girl (my dad likes to tell me I’m not a real Italian). Give me alllll the creamy sauces. 😉 You guys also know I am all about the pasta + veggies life. If I want pasta, I eat it. It’s no longer a “no no” food where I need to eat salad for the next three days to make up for it (that was annoying). But I do like to include veggies in most of my meals, so I load them in there!

This Mushroom and Pea Pesto Fettuccine is SIMPLE! Pre-sliced mushrooms, frozen peas, store bought pesto and pasta. You are more than welcome to slice your own mushrooms and make your own pesto, I’ll just be eating already 😉
