Linguine with Pesto Genovese

  • 350g Barilla® Linguine
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 50g basil leaves
  • 15g pine nuts
  • 20g Pecorino Romano
  • 40g Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Salt

1. Wash and drain the basil leaves carefully. Peel a clove of garlic.

2. In a mixer, put together the basil leaves, the clove of garlic, the grated cheeses, the pine nuts, the extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.

3. Whizz well until mixture is creamy and smooth. Set aside.

4. Boil the linguine in plenty of boiling water. We recommend using 1 litre of water for every 100 g of pasta.

5. Before draining, remember to set aside a spoonful of pasta water to help toss and stir together the pasta and sauce.

6. Drain al dente, stir in a bowl with the pesto and serve.
