This fresh and simple Italian pesto is a perfect sauce for your pasta, and great as a condiment too. London based Culinary Instructor Sage Russell shares his recipe for classic Ligurian pesto using basil, parmesan, pine nuts and olive oil in this Grokker Premium video. A perfect choice for when time is tight, but you don't want to sacrifice on flavor or freshness.

Cooking Recipe

Servings: 4

Ingredients:
3 cups fresh basil
3/4 cup raw untoasted pine nuts
2/3 cup chopped parmesan cheese
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt for seasoning to taste

Directions:
1. Place parmesan into food processor and break down to smaller pieces. Add in raw untoasted pine nuts and fresh basil and whiz it until it is finely chopped.

2. Drizzle in extra virgin olive oil and continue to mix. Use the spatula to scrape down the sides and whiz it some more.

3. Once you have the right consistency you can add any type of seasoning you want (salt, spices, etc).

4. Spoon pesto into a bowl and mix with fresh cooked pasta (watch https://grokker.com/cooking/video/how-to-make-homemade-tagliatelle-pasta-/513f56acc5afe6806d002948 by https://grokker.com/cooking/expert/john-and-sage/50f5eae6ba0c031c31000006).
