Spaghetti With Pesto
|Fresh basil leaves||2 Ounce (60 Gram)|
|Basil sprig||1 (For Garnish)|
|Pine nuts||3 Tablespoon|
|Garlic||4 Clove (20 gm), crushed|
|Mild olive oil||5 Tablespoon|
|Spaghetti||12 Ounce (375 Gram)|
1. Combine basil, pine nuts, garlic, sugar and salt in a blender or food processor. Process briefly to mix. With motor running, gradually add oil through lid or feeder tube, as when making mayonnaise. The mixture will form a thick sauce. Scrape pesto into a bowl or jug, cover and set aside.
2. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add spaghetti and cook until just tender.
3. Drain spaghetti and tip it into a heated bowl. Add pesto and toss until all the spaghetti is evenly coated.
