Perfectly Simple Pesto Pasta

4 years ago

pesto used to scare me. it seems so hoity-toity. but this is SO simple and SO delicious. you HAVE to try it! i make a few batches at a time and freeze or refrigerate the extra because it lasts such a long time. honestly, i eat this pasta cold, straight from the tupperware. hashtag: not ashamed.

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups chopped basil

1/3 cup almonds (or combination of nuts such as walnuts, almonds, pine nuts..)

1/3 cup olive oil

1-2 garlic cloves

salt and pepper to taste

your choice of pasta ( i use rice pasta)

cherry tomatoes, to garnish

HOW TO:

in a food processor, combine basil , almonds/nuts of choice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. pulse until well combined.

cook pasta according to the package directions. pour pesto over top of drained noodles and mix to combine. top with cherry tomatoes to garnish and serve. great served with garlic toast!

just...yum.
