Frozen summer: Pasta with homemade pesto

(viewed 2038 times)

It rained all day today.

You can already feel the beginning of Autumn, so I thought I'd make something infused with the whole of the summer sunshine.

To make the pesto:

30g of basil leaves
1/3 cup olive oil
Pine nuts
Sea salt

I just chopped the basil finely and added to the oil.

Then add lots of grated parmiagiano, and a bit of sea salt.

And finally the toasted pinenuts, whole not chopped.

Let the flavours combine and intensify in the fridge for at least a few
hours before eating.
