Using a large pot, heat water until it begins to boil. Add penne pasta noodles and cook 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and set aside. For pesto sauce, place all ingredients in a blender. Cover and blend in high speed until uniform consistency is reached. Combine noodles and sauce then serve!
