Pasta in Pesto with Uni-Pak Sardines (FREE Easy Recipe)

Here's a confession: I don't know how to cook. Everyone in my family has outstanding cooking skills, so many of them are wondering why I ended up being different. In our family, I am considered as the only person whose ability is to taste whatever is served on our table. You can only see me on the dining table, but never in the kitchen where all the magic happens. The truth is that I never had a passion for cooking meals or preparing dishes. I kept on saying that I'm too busy to do it...

However, just recently, I became interested in learning how to cook. For me, it is a beautiful art that I need to master. We all know that good food is often associated with great mood and happiness. Fortunately, a lot of people have been helping me in the process of acquiring some cooking skills. As a beginner, I have to start with something simple such as a pasta dish. According to my mom, I can never go wrong with pasta as long as I follow the proper procedure.

Over the weekend, my mom and I spent some bonding time in the kitchen to learn how to cook Pasta in Pesto. We added a twist to our dish with Uni-Pak Sardines in Spicy Oil. It was such a delight to know that I got to cook it right! Allow me to share the recipe in this post. (Giveaway alert: Make sure to check the last part of this post for a chance to win a gift pack from Uni-Pak!).
