Pasta with Homemade Pesto Sauce



Pasta , one of the favourite meal at home...Whenever i get fresh basil,i make pesto sauce and store it in fridge...To make the best italian pasta,i recommend the original version of olive oil produced by Italy...I know few brands that play best role in enhancing the taste...



To Make Pesto Sauce
Basil-250 gms(3 cups)
Walnuts/Pinenuts-1/3 cup
Olive Oil-1/3 cup
Salt-1/4 tsp


Method
1.Grain the basil leaves,garlic,walnuts and salt without water
(i like it coarsely)
2.Add the olive oil to the basil and grain it,Pour the thick sauce in a bottle or an air tight container


This sauce can be stored for 6 months...It can be used on bread toast,Grilled Fish/Vegetables,Pizza and of course pasta.


To Make Pesto Pasta
Ingredients
Pasta-250 gms
Olive oil-1 tsp
Garlic,chopped-2 cloves
Bell Pepper/Tomato/Zucchini,sliced-1 cup
Pepper powder-half tsp
Pesto Sauce-3 tsps
Parmesan Cheese-2 tsps


Method
1.Boil the pasta ,Once cooked,drain the water
2.Heat a pan,pour a tsp of olive oil
3.Saute the garlic and vegetables
4.Add the cooked pasta to it and sprinkle the pepper powder
5.Add the pesto sauce and toss the pasta

Sprinkle some cheese and serve it hot...
If u want diluted sauce,add some water that u used to cook the pasta....

Tips
  • Donot add water to the sauce,if u r storing it..Add a generous amt of olive oil on top pesto sauce before storing..Use the same oil for making the pasta
  • Since i added salt to pesto sauce,and the cheese will also have salt in it
  • So,add a dash of salt just to cook the pasta



Bon Appetit !
