Pesto pasta is one of the simplest pastas to make. Whatever type of pesto you use, finishing with a generous sprinkle of Parmesan is not optional!

Ingredients:

  

- Leaves from 2 bunch fresh basil

- 2 tablespoons pine nuts, untoasted

- 1 garlic clove

- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano

- Salt and freshly ground black pepper

- 1 pound angel hair pasta

- 1 Avocado

- 1/2 pound Cherry Tomatoes

- 1 harvested HAMAMA Super Salad Mix Microgreen Seed Quilt 

 

Instructions:

    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the pasta. Combine the basil, pine nuts, garlic, and olive oil in a blender and blend to a puree. Add the cheese, salt and pepper, and blend again.
    2. Cook the pasta in the boiling, salted water until al dente, about 3 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add the pesto and toss. Taste for salt and pepper, and add a drizzle of oil, if you like.
