Pasta with Brussels sprout top pesto, mushrooms and walnuts

pasta pesto and mushrooms 42

This recipe was inspired by one of the recipe created a while ago: mushrooms pasta with pesto and walnuts. I made this new version only on my memories and then when I checked the actual recipe, I can see that we can’t really trust our memories… but the result is really tasty and smells good in the whole kitchen.

In this recipe, I used a homemade pesto but you can obviously decide to go ahead with a ready-made pesto.

How to make Pasta with Brussels sprout top pesto, mushrooms, and walnuts?

  • Start by cooking the pasta as indicated on the packaging
