There's nobody who doesn't like pesto, right? It's pretty amazing. It's just salty, garlicky, tasty food. And it's pretty easy to make. Pesto is pretty standard, too. You can mix it up with the nut you use and how many cloves of garlic. I keep mine pretty traditional, some garlic, pinenuts, basil and olive oil. Salt, pepper and nooch are a must for me, so you can must as little or as much as you like.
Here it is, it's green pesto-glory.
1 lb pasta, noodles or shapes
2-3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 large bunch basil
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons nooch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper.
Boil water for pasta.
In a food processor, chop pinenuts and garlic as fine as you can get them. Then add basil and process until relatively smooth. Slowly add the olive oil through the top of the food processor while it's still running, until a smooth sauce is achieved.
Boil pasta and drain. Toss pasta with pesto and serve.
