How to Make Pasta with Pesto

Step-by-Step

  1. To make the pesto, place the garlic, pine nuts and a large pinch of sea salt in a blender or food processor and process briefly. Add the basil leaves and process to a paste.
  2. With the motor running, gradually add the oil. Scrape into a bowl and beat in the cheese. Season to taste with salt.
  3. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, return to a boil, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender but still firm to the bite.
