In today's Facebook and Instagram live streams, Florinda will demonstrate how to create this pesto pasta. In her live streams, she'll also highlight a variety of different pastas we sell at the store and briefly discuss why they are great options suiting diverse dietary needs. You really need to see it to know how to make it, so be sure to join us every other Friday at 11 AM for more Frutiful Fridays with Florinda!
