Pistachio Pasta

Image

A very dear friend of mine (you know who you are) inspired me to make this surprisingly refreshing pasta, with a pistachio pesto sauce!

The recipe is adapted from Nate Hamilton’s original Pistachio Pesto recipe.

Ingredients (serves 6)

500g spaghetti

1.5 cups shell roasted, unsalted pistachios

1.5 cups fresh mint leaves

5-6 Cherry Tomatoes

1/4 cup parmesan cheese

1-2 tsp Pimento chilli powder ( alternatively, crushed red chilli flakes will do)

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tsp salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Pulse:

Pulse all the ingredients ( except the spaghetti ofcourse! Haha!) in a processor, until a course puree is formed.

Done!

Toss with hot spaghetti. Garnish with  mint.

Enjoy!

This is my new favourite pasta dish!
