PISTACHIOS PESTO PASTA

Hey beautiful!

It’s Thursday, time for a new recipe!

How are you feeling about a good plate of pasta? With a good, creamy sauce that is a bit different from usual. Like pistachios pesto!!

It takes literally 5 minutes to make and it taste like how I imagine heaven to taste! :)

pistachios

(makes 450gr pesto sauce, 2 portions – takes 20 minutes – vegan, gluten-free)

INGREDIENTS:

-250gr roasted pistachios (if not already roasted, do that yourself, slip them in the oven for 10 minutes, gas mark 4/180°C)

- 1 small lemon juice

-6 basil leaves

- 1 roughly chopped garlic clove

- 50ml olive oil

- 150ml filtered water

- salt & pepper to taste

- 200gr gluten-free pasta (I used RUMMO, which I really love!)

HOW TO: 

Put all the ingredients above (except the pasta of course!) in a blender and blend baby! You should get a creamy, nutty sauce. And what will happen is that you’re gonna taste it and you’re gonna LOVE it!

But I want you to stay focus because you’re gonna need it for the pasta! So let’s put it aside for now and let’s cook the pasta! I love RUMMO pasta, it’s really tasty and they’re doing gluten-free versions of each type!

To be honest I don’t need to eat gluten-free, meaning that I don’t have any physical condition that requires me to, but sometimes I prefer to eat a non diary meal, especially in the evening. It makes me feel less bloated and I sleep better.

MAMMA MIA RAGAZZI, CHE PASTA! :)

Conserve the rest of the pesto in a jar, in the fridge for a week.
