All I did was saute some garlic and mushrooms in olive oil, added my pasta, and then added a couple of spoons of my Pesto sauce. Mixed it all in – and dinner was ready in under 15 minutes!

If you are someone who is like me and love the idea of easy and simple recipes, you definitely have to give this recipe a try. This is also great as a quick school lunch idea that you can make ahead of time.

To keep things simple, I have used Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto – it is creamy, delicious, packed with flavor and a little goes a long way.

It has become a staple in my pantry because it is so versatile! Not only can you use it in pasta dishes, but you can also use it as a spread on toasts or sandwiches, use it to marinate meat, or even as a dip  – the possibilities are endless!

One of my other favorite ways to use it is to spread it on my toast and top it off with a fried egg or boiled egg – such a wholesome and delish breakfast!

So without wasting any more time, let’s get started with this super simple recipe – 


Easy Pesto Pasta with Mushrooms


  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic - 4-5 cloves
  • Sliced Mushrooms - 8 oz
  • Pasta of your choice (I used linguini pasta)
  • Barilla Creamy Genovese Pesto - 3 tbsp
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Parmesan cheese (for garnishing)


  1. Boil pasta as per directions on packaging
  2. Heat some olive oil in a pan and add garlic. Cook for about a minute and then add sloced mushrooms and let it cook for 7-8 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Then add your boiled pasta in it and mix it.
  4. Add Barilla Pesto sauce and mix everything together.
  5. Add salt & pepper to taste (you may not need salt because the pesto sauce already has salt so check before adding salt)
  6. Add grated parmesan cheese on top and serve.
