I was thinking about what to cook for tea tonight that won’t be too heavy in the tummy as we will eat late. Jason has karate practise until 8.30 and will need to have something easily digested. We decided on pasta and basil pesto 🙂
First assemble the ingredients. As there are only five of them, it didn’t take too long at all.
1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
2 garlic cloves, halved or chopped
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts
5 tablespoons olive oil
Get a small fry pan and heat it on a moderate heat. Add the pine nuts and gently toast till nicely browned.
