Pasta and Basil Pesto

April 24, 2011

Quite some time ago, before my life became crazy and I abandoned blogging, I made Basil Pesto for the first time. In fact, this was the first time I have ever eaten Basil Pesto. Let me tell you, it was delicious.

Pasta:

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Water
Mix ingredients together. Add water/flour as needed. Kneed into ball for 15 minutes. Let rest for 20 minutes.
Roll out as thin as humanly possible and cut into strips.
Boil to cook like you would any boxed pasta.

Basil Pesto:

I followed this recipe exactly: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/fresh_basil_pesto/. I used walnuts rather than pinenuts as they suggested, and it tasted great!

Enjoy! -Brenda
