Tonight I made a yummy pasta dish and even had some pesto left over.
-2 ounces of fresh basil
-1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
-1 medium clove of garlic
-1/4 cup Pignoli (pine) nuts
-about 1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
-1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
-1 cup of whole wheat penne
In a small food processor add basil, garlic, cheese, nuts and drizzle in oil. Add your ingredients in a little at a time until you have used them all. Don’t add too much oil at once because your pesto will become too watery. On the other hand, if your pesto is too thick you can always add in a little pasta water later on. Slice up the sundried tomatoes and warm them up in a small pan. Mix together your pasta, pesto and sundried tomatoes and you’re done! This meal took no more than 20 minutes.
