A new family favorite is my homemade Pesto Pasta! I hope you try it and enjoy!
1/3 cup olive oil
3 cups of fresh basil leaves
3 cloves garlic, peeled
3 tablespoons pine nuts
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 (16 ounce) package of pasta – I used regular spaghetti
Kosher Salt and ground black pepper to taste
To make the pesto:
- Combine basil, garlic, pine nuts, and Parmesan in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper to taste.
- With the food processor running, add olive oil in a slow stream until blended.
To make the pasta:
- Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Not too hard. Not to soft. Drain.
- Put pasta in large bowl with pesto and stir.
