Ready to Noodle Around?

Here’s the video that shows you how to make it:

Servings: 4
Pesto Pasta
2 cups, fresh basil
2 T pine nuts
2 T unsalted butter
1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (NOT the powder in the can, trust us!)
1/2 t. salt
1 box, pasta of your choice
What You’ll Need
1 large cooking pot
1 bowl
Food processor
  1. Boil up your pasta of your choice.
  2. Add the following into your food processor:
    • Rinsed fresh basil
    • Two tablespoons of unsalted butter
    • ½ cup of grated parmesan cheese
    • 2 tablespoons of pine nuts
    • Two garlic cloves
    • ½ teaspoon of salt
    • 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  3. Process your ingredients together (scrape the inner sides of the food processor as needed), your pesto will blend into a thick, yummy sauce. 
  4. Drain your pasta, but don’t rinse.
  5. Toss pesto over hot pasta and mix well –or- freeze the pesto separately if you aren’t quite ready to devour it.
Enjoy now or later! You can freeze pesto and let it thaw in the fridge overnight for a quick and tasty dinner. Now that’s something to smile about!

About "Braces Friendly Eats" by Collins Orthodontics
When Malia prepped for clear braces treatment at Collins Orthodontics, she shared her plan with us. Her meal plan! She jumped on the internet, found the foods perfect for her first week in braces, and prepped them before ever sitting back in our chair at Collins Orthodontics. 
The result? Collins Orthodontics presents Braces Friendly Eats featuring Malia Howe—healthy foods you’ll love that won’t irritate your smile while you start your treatment.

Meet Malia
Say hello to mom, blogger and (surprise!) ninja in the kitchen, Malia Howe. She never had braces before and recently decided she was ready for the perfect smile. And she didn’t have to look far for the right orthodontist, Dr. Grant Collins, a family friend. Together they decided to bring these tasty, smile-friendly eats to patients everywhere.
