Spaghetti with pesto is an Italian classic. Change the spaghetti to rice noodles and the traditional pesto of basil, Parmesan and pignolis to one made with cilantro, mint, basil, and peanuts, and you have a brand new spin on an old-time favorite! Serve this dish as a side as-is, or toss in some shrimp, chicken, or vegetables for a fun fusion main course.
