Recipe for Spaghettini with Portabellos and Pesto

Spaghettini with Portabellos and Pesto -

In this recipe, I chose to use Spaghettini, which is slightly thinner than traditional spaghetti because I wanted something more delicate to make the other ingredients stand out. And boy did they ever! The pan fried portabellos and leeks paired with a robust fresh basil pesto –perfect dinner!
