What could be better than a good dish of pasta with pesto.This is the version I do without potatoes and green beans but it's always very tasty!!!
ingredients for my basic pesto:
a large bunch of basil
1 clove of garlic
1 tbs of pinenuts
2 0 3 tbs of grated parmesan cheese,also pecorino cheese is perfect with this sauce
a good amount of evoo
so simple..put all ingredients in a mixer and reduce them to a puree,if the puree results too dry add more oil that's all!!!bon appetit
