This is a recipe that I got from a dear friend of mine Raksha. The only variation that I did with this is that I sauteed the garlic before making the pesto sauce as I did not like the strong garlic flavor.
This serves 6 ppl.
- Garlic – 2 cloves
- Fresh basil – a few leaves
- Walnuts – handful
- Olive oil
- Spaghetti pasta – 1/2 packet cooked al dente
- Salt to taste
- Raw bell pepper – chopped fine (optional)
Step 1: In a small wok, add 1 tbsp of olive oil and saute the garlic till it starts to brown a little.
Step 2: Once it is cooled, add the sauteed garlic, basil, and walnuts to a blender or a food processor. Crush till the garlic is in very small pieces and the mixture is in fine paste.
Step 3: Add this paste into the serving bowl containing the cooked spaghetti pasta. Mix the pasta thoroughly till all the pasta gets coated with the sauce.
Step 4: Add salt to taste and continue mixing so that the salt is spread evenly.
Step 5: Before serving, add the raw bell pepper for added taste.
Your Pesto Pasta is ready!! I have added the pictures of the making of the pesto sauce… If I have the images of the final dish I will add it again.
