To say that my family likes spicy food is a huge understatement! If we’re not eating a tasty spicy dish, we’re dousing our food in hot sauce. During the warmer months I’m always trying to find new ways to add a kick to our salads, salsas, and even dips! This jalapeño pesto pasta salad is the perfect recipe to get our spicy fix!
This fresh jalapeño pesto tastes great on veggies, chicken, seafood, and even in place of pizza sauce! I even like to keep an extra batch handy to use on my eggs for breakfast!
Pasta salads make for the best side dish because they’re so easy to customize and serve a crowd! This jalapeño pesto pasta salad is a favorite at home, but my husband and I are also realistic and know that we have to also have some back up help because we’re both prone to the occasional indigestion.
