Quick and Healthy Pesto.
Pasta with Walnut Pesto
Garden Fresh Pesto.
Old World style or the Emulsified style works well for today's Pesto Recipe.
Today, we cut the seasons first Fresh Basil and Parsley from our garden. I choose to rough cut the basil and parsley, instead of putting them in the blender or food processor. Sometimes I do process the herbs in the food processor, but today I wanted to make this dish the "Old World" way with rough cut herbs.
It's fine if you want to emulsify the herbs in a blender or food processor. The following recipe will work either way. I think that the olive oil mixes better with rough cut herbs but that's just me.
Use whatever pasta that you like. My husband likes Linguini. I am sensitive to starches, so I use Zero Carb Noodles. You can purchase them on line.
Walnut Pesto over Pasta
2 Cups Chopped Basil Leaves
1/3 Cup Chopped Parsley
1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
2-4 Chopped or Grated Cloves of Garlic
1 Cup Grated Romano or Parmesan Cheese
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1-2 Anchovies (Optional)
Mix all ingredients together. Spoon over cooked Linguini, Zero Carb Noodles or your choice of Pasta.
Until we meet again... Francesca27
