Pesto Pasta Recipe

June 25, 2015

Who doesn’t love pesto? This is a great full-flavoured dish that is not only filling, but extremely tasty.

Ingredients

  • 1 packet of kamut pasta, cooked
  • ¼ cup of pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup of soaked almonds
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup
  • 1 very large bunch of fresh basil
  • 1 bunch of fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • juice of a lemon
  • ¼ cup of olive oil
  • ¼ cup of water
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Season your cooked pasta well with salt and pepper, splash of olive oil, and half of your chopped parsley. Set aside.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to a blender and blend. You want to leave a little texture like I have done in this pic, this is not a smoothie 🙂
  3. Toss the warm pasta though your pesto and serve.
