Pesto pasta

Group I

  • Pasta - 1 cup
  • Cream - 1 -2 tbsp (optional)
  • Salt to taste

For pesto sauce (group II)

  • Basil or mint or cilantro - 1 cup
  • Pine nuts or almonds - 1/4 cup
  • Olive oil - 2 tbsp
  • Cheese - 1 tbsp
  • Garlic - 2
  • Salt to taste


  • Grind everything together(group II) and make a pesto sauce.
  • Bring enough water to boil. Add salt and pasta to it. Cook till the pasta is soft. Now drain the water and keep it aside.
  • Now slightly warmup the cream and mix pasta and the sauce to it.
  • If you need more cheese, then sprinkle it before serving.
Tips for the recipe - You can add a spoon of oil while cooking pasta. This will prevent the pasta from sticking together. Still I didn't add it because i want the sauce to get well coated with pasta.
