Simple Pesto Spaghetti

A family favourite I like to whip up on lazier days.

Serves 4
500g spaghetti

For the pesto:
50g toasted pine nuts
50g parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
A handful of basil
50ml Extra Virgin olive oil
Salt to taste


  1. Pound the pesto ingredients to a paste in a pestle and mortar or food processor.
  2. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente.  Drain and put back into the pan .
  3. Gently toss everything together allowing the Pesto to coat the pasta evenly.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy !
