Keri's Pesto Pasta

I do not eat a lot of pasta but who can deny that it is just really good sometimes. I like to make raw pasta out of zucchini but tonight I wanted to keep it simple and use what I already had at home.
So tonight I tried quinoa pasta and made a basil,walnut & tomato pesto. It is really pretty good.

Cook the pasta per the directions on the package
In a food processor combine
Approx. 1 cup fresh basil leaves
Approx. 1/4 cup walnuts (maybe a little more)
1 small tomato, chopped
4-5 cloves garlic

Process and serve on top of the pasta drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and black pepper to taste.
Spinach leaves would work well in place of basil.
