I don’t think I could possibly describe in words how much I love cilantro or how much I love peanut sauces or how much I love making pesto.  Not to mention how much I love eating pasta.  This might just be heaven for me.  Plus, it’s a quick and budget-friendly meal.  You can’t get much better than that – unless you could make it calorie free.  In which case, I would eat the entire pound of pasta all by myself.

On a side note, I got a really cool new food processor *affiliate link-blender combo machine for my birthday.  A food processor *affiliate link was just one of those things that I had decided to live without while we are living in France, but now that I have one I have been looking for as many reasons to use it as I can find.  So far, this cilantro peanut pesto tops my list of uses.  Just throw everything into the food processor *affiliate link, toss the pasta with the sauce and garnish with extra peanuts and cilantro.  It really doesn’t get much easier than that.
