Basil Pasta Salad
20 minutes | 6-8
Pesto is a very easy and flexible recipe that every aspiring cook (and for that matter the cooking-averse) should know. Feel free to adjust proportions to your taste. Try experimenting with different nuts and leafy herbs. Arugula or Italian Parsley work well, as do walnuts and even pistachios.
A food processor is the easiest tool for the job, but feel free to use a blender, stick blender or even a mortar and pestle.
