Long time didn’t post anything. I had short and unplanned trip to Russia, then had been moving into a new apartment (bigger, lighter, lucky me). But one Russian saying says “moving is worse than a fire”, and I can’t agree. It really drains me. Thank God, almost all stuff already in place.
Since my small basil has been grown I’m trying to use it, it gives wonderful aroma:)
The simplest dish- penne with basil and parmigiano. Serve 1-for yourself 😉
-You can use any ready basil pesto or do it the quickest version: basil, some parmesan and olive oil mix in a blender until smoothly combine or fresh basil leaves with olive oil.
-Cook 100-200 g of the penne in plenty of boiling salted water around 9 minutes. Drain it, reserve few spoons of cooking water or use cream.
-Toss and stir the hot pasta with pesto, fresh basil leaves and reserving water or cream.
-Spinkle with pistachios and parmesan.
Serve and Enjoy:)
Have a lovely weekend!
