Pesto Prontissimo

(25)

printable version


Comments 308 comments   

Ingredients:

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
3-4 cloves garlic, peeled
3 Tbsp pine nuts
5 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup aged Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup aged Pecorino cheese, grated
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

In a blender, process the basil, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, and salt until smooth. Remove to a bowl (you can freeze at this point too).

Stir in the cheeses (the Pecorino can be replaced with more Parmesan, but the Pecorino is what gives the pesto its kick!). Add pepper to taste.

Toss with 1 1/4 lbs. cooked linguine, along with 3 Tbsp. of the liquid from the pasta pot.

Serve immediately. Buona fortuna!

where do you buy pine nuts and what do they taste like ?
reply   Report abuse report abuse
by TLCROCKETT   
We buy them at Costco but you have to buy a big bag and yes, now they are very expensive even there. You can substitute walnuts for the pine nuts. We do this sometimes.
by MARYFERN   
All I know is that they are expensive.
