it's easy and delicious! oo takes almost 15 minutes to make (the time it takes to cook the pasta)
so all u need is:
basil (the recipe said 4 cups but i only used shadda wa7da)
2 garlic cloves
1 cup + 3 tbs freshly garted parmesan cheese
1/3 tsp salt
1/4 tsp back peper powder
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
6 tbs pinenuts
put 1/3 kamiyat il olive oil in the food processor.. add all of the above ingredients..
mix for 5 seconds.. add another 1/3 of the olive oil .. mix for 5 seconds.. then add the remaining 1/3 of the oilve oil and mix for another 5 seconds..
the sauce now is ready..
while doing the above, boil the pasta until al dente (i've noticed they use "al dente" alot when cooking pastas oo tara i don't really know what it means, but i love the sound of it.. very sophisticated ;p)
il muhim, when the pasta is ready just mix it with the pesto sauce
and garnish with 2 tbs of roasted pinenuts and some parmesan cheese and voila!
fee as'hal min chithy?!
