A creamy macaroni preparation that is flavourful and filling too. The combination of basil and walnut rich pesto sauce with milk and cream gives the Pesto Macaroni a deep and intense texture that pampers the palate. The use of capsicum imparts a pleasant crunch to the recipe, while the herbs and chilli flakes give it an appealing aroma and flavour.

Wow! It tastes so awesome. The basil-walnut sauce gives a refreshing taste to the pasta. Not White.. Not Red.. It's green!
