Recipe For Italian Pasta Using Pesto

Right, you are reading the title and wondering why I have put down Italian Pasta when all pasta is Italian? I created a challenge and the ingredients that had to be used were leeks, sundried tomatoes, olives and basil. I made rolls – flavoured Italian Rolls and with the leftover ingredients, made a pasta sauce.
