Pesto Sauce

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.


  1. Garlic – 2 cloves
  2. Fresh basil – a few leaves
  3. Walnuts – handful
  4. Olive oil
  5. Spaghetti pasta – 1/2 packet cooked al dente
  6. Salt to taste
  7. 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.
