2 herb pesto spaghetti ( Spaghetti al pesto con due erbe)

Spaghetti al pesto con due erbe
After undergoing dental surgery, I have been the luckiest gal in the world because Michele has been pampering me. First night he brought home three Jamba juices just for me, coz I couldn't really chew...

Tonight he made 2 herb pesto spaghetti, something soft for me to eat. Here is his recipe:

fresh parsley
fresh basil
pine nuts
1 garlic
olive oil
really good quality Parmigiano-Reggiano
salt & pepper


roast pine nuts in pan, set aside

combine the following ingredients into food processor: chopped basil, chopped parsley, chopped garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano and salt & pepper. Blend until it becomes a smooth paste.

In a pot of boiling water, add salt and cook the spaghetti al dente

Pour the pesto sauce in a saute pan and warm it up. Drain the spaghetti, and toss the pasta into the pesto sauce, stir well, not allowing the pasta to overcook too long.

Garnish with parsley leaf.

Thank you, chef Panico!
