please rescue my pesto pasta!

I'm headed to a potluck at my CSA farm tonight.

i thought i was being brilliant to use frozen pesto from last summer's harvest to make pesto pasta.

i cooked up the pasta while my two toddlers were eating lunch (gotta do things when i get the chance around here)and tossed the hot pasta in with the frozen pesto cubes (i had frozen the pesto in ice cube trays then wrapped each cube in plastic wrap)

we came back inside from a round of swinging on our swings and i stirred it all up; the pesto was gorgeous and brilliant and it coated the pasta perfectly, then...it turned dark brown almost instantly. My beautiful green pesto looks like sludge.

well duh, i guess i should have known it would turn brown, but is there anything i can do now? nobody in their right mind would touch this stuff on a potluck table.

it DOES taste good, just looks terrible.
