Homemade meals do not need to be time consuming. This fresh and tasty meal is one of my favourites and you can have it with all sorts of pasta. I love trying out different pasta shapes and flavours from white pasta to brown. I was very lucky at Christmas and received a food processor. The first thing I made was pesto! I had really missed being able to whip this one up. This recipe makes enough for 4 people but if you want to freeze half you can! Or you could make half instead. Or you might be cooking for 4….
Recipe (serves 4)
50g fresh basil
3 crushed garlic cloves
25g grated parmesan
25g pine nuts
8 tbsp. olive oil
pan for heating
- It really is as simple as whizz up in a food processor and heat until warm!
Serve with pasta and grilled bacon. I also sometimes put fried mushrooms in it and serve with some salad. I love this recipe – fresh, healthy and tasty! What more could you want mid week?
