Spring Pesto Pasta Salad

In a lot of ways we are like any other kitchen; Monday rolls around and we take a look at what's left over in our fridge and wonder what on earth to make with what's left over. 

Today is one of those days. I love looking at any meal time as a fun challenge to see how many things I cam create with what's on hand. Today we had some radishes and cavatappi pasta to use and my new favorite way to eat radishes is sauteed in a little olive. Cooking radishes helps bring out their sweetness. Here is my recipe for a Spring Pesto Pasta Salad with sauteed radishes and leeks. Enjoy.

We/re glad we are not the only ones who somedays just want a break from doing the dishes!
