Pesto With Linguine

Pesto With Linguine

There are more pesto recipes that I could possibly count. This is the way that I am making it. Plain and super simple. I don't add any cheese as I prefer adding it with the pasta.

INGREDIENTS

3 bunches basil leaves
3 garlic cloves - or more if you want it more garlicky
1tsp sea salt
3/4 cup EVOO 

1 pack linguine or any long pasta

PREPARATION

  1.  In a food processor, add everything together and blend well.
  2. If not use it right away, store in a glass jar with some extra olive oil on top and store in the fridge for about 1 month
  3. Prepare the pasta, till al dente.
  4. I a large bowl, place 3 tbsp ps pesto and some butter.
  5. Add pasta water and the pasta and toss everything well. Add more pasta water if needed.
  6. Add cheese- parmesan or pecorino- and toss vigorously.
  7. Season with fresh pepper and some more salt if needed.
