Mussels Pesto Spaghetti

Pesto is Ykaie’s favorite Pasta dish. What was surprising was and she learned to appreciate it at the age of two. And she didn’t like Pinoy Spaghetti at all — at that age. Only pesto — or no sauce at all. Just pasta. Ang weird no? One would think that the first thing kids would appreciate is the white or the red sauced pastas.

I remember she would frequently ask for pesto pasta that it became a regular in our menu rotation at home. We would only change the meat it comes with — chicken, spanish chorizo, sausage, tuna, shrimp. Now we have a new one on our list — mussels. And it turned out so good!
