American.Gourmet's picture
Ingredients
  Fresh basil leaves 2 Ounce (60 Gram)
  Basil sprig 1 (For Garnish)
  Pine nuts 3 Tablespoon
  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), crushed
  Sugar 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Mild olive oil 5 Tablespoon
  Spaghetti 12 Ounce (375 Gram)
Directions

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.
