  • Cook pasta according to instructions. I use a pasta cooker that takes 15 minutes. drain sprinkle with a touch of olive oil and set aside.
  • Combine the fresh-cut basil, minced garlic, black pepper, salt, virgin olive oil in NutriBlast or food processor of choice until it reaches your desired consistency. I do mine until it is a smooth texture.
  • Add the pesto sauce on top of the pasta, garnish with toasted pine nuts, parmeasan cheese and tomatoes (if desired) and serve.
