As you’ll read below I wrote a general name as “salty cheese”, because now that I live abroad, I know how hard is to find all Italian cheese, such us ‘ricotta salata‘ or ‘primosale” etc, so I simply adapted this recipe with any kind of salty cheese I am able to find. I tried with Feta, and it taste amazing!This recipe is inspired by the famous ‘pesto alla trapanese‘, but I changed it a little bit to my own taste. Trapani is a beautiful sea city in the west Sicily.
Easy and quick, with few ingredients.This is my favorite dressing of a quick pasta recipe ever! Yumm… In this picture I was using ‘spinach pasta’, but with a regular kind of pasta it is as tasty.
Note: You will need an electric chopper/blender.
Time: 7 minutes
Ingredients: [ for 2 person]
- 1 big tomato or
- 50 gr any salty cheese ( better of course is with ‘ricotta salata‘..but also Feta is good)
- 15 leaves fresh basil
- 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- pepper ( good amount)
- pine nuts (20 gr ca.)
- almonds (6 -7) ( you can skip them)
1. Just toss everything in the blender and push the bottom!
2.Keep always one glass of boiling water from your pasta and add it in the sauce in order to make it creamier.
