Pesto Cream Sauce

This is the way I like to eat pesto...in a cream sauce over pasta. It would be great served over some steamed vegetables. In fact the 2nd picture I sauteed some zucchini and threw it in with the pasta and it was great. I served these pasta dishes with some grilled chicken.

Recipe from Our Family Treat

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Pesto (I use about 1/4 cup or 2 ice cube sized chunks, thawed)

Melt the butter, and then add flour. Once the roux is created, add the cream. Stir until warm. Add cheese. Once the Parmesan cheese is all melted, add the pesto. Stir and keep warm until ready to add to pasta.
