Coriander Pesto | A Recipe for Pasta Sauce
Last week I became the proud owner of this little beaut:
(Yes i’m aware it’s only a food processor but to me this is EXCITING) )
So I’ve been looking for simple sauce recipes for everyday meals, and as the worlds biggest pasta lover, and owner of a redundant bunch of coriander from a previous meal, this lovely recipe from Saskia seemed to hit the spot! I changed Basil to coriander and added a few extra touches. I can guarantee it is lush! (and really, chucking everything in a blender, what could be easier?)
100g walnuts, chopped
3 cups (100g) baby spinach leaves, chopped
4 cups (3 bunches) Coriander
6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 cup (250 ml) olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
50g grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch of cayenne pepper
- Blender, blend coriander, Spinach, garlic, cayenne pepper, Parmesan cheese, nuts, and salt. Add 1/4 of the olive oil, and blend the pesto. Add more olive oil until the pesto reaches your desired consistency.
- Pour pesto in a small saucepan and warm over low heat, stirring constantly, until pesto begins to simmer. Pour over cooked pasta and toss.
I had enough to last a few meals, and added some peas and goats cheese to serve
Doesn’t it look tasty?
