- Meanwhile, make the pesto cream sauce: Place the pesto, heavy cream, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until it just starts to thicken, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
- When the pasta is done, add it with the sauce. Taste and add a few pinches more salt until the flavor pops like a backside on the dance floor.
