Linguine with Basil Pesto

Serves: 4

Ingredients: Ingredients Linguine-Basil-

  • 400g of Linguine
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 6 ripe tomatoes
  • 100g almonds
  • A handful of fresh basil
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Using a pestle and mortar (or food mixer) pound the basil and the garlic until you have a paste. Add the tomatoes chopped into small cubes along with the almonds, a splash of olive oil and salt and pepper. Keep pounding (or mixing) until you have a thick creamy mix (lumps are no bad thing!).

Once the pasta is ready either mix with the pesto straight away and serve, or let it cool, adding a drop of olive oil, add the pesto and leave in the fridge for half an hour. Serve with a crisp white wine.
