Spaghetti with Homemade Pesto Sauce

Pasta With Pesto Sauce

So I gave you a recipe for Marinara Sauce and now it’s only right that I give you a great recipe for Pesto Sauce. Yes this sauce is a bit heavier on the calories because it is an oil based sauce and has pine nuts in the recipe but it is absolutely delicious.

There is a Kosher Dairy Restaurant in New York called “My Most Favorite Food” which serves the most amazing Farfalle Pasta with Pesto Sauce and ever since I tasted it there I was hooked.

I made it this week and served it with pasta but it’s not only a pasta sauce. Pesto sauce is often served with salad as a dressing, put into grilled cheese sandwiches or on top of chicken. I also like putting pesto sauce when I make avocado/feta veggie wraps. It is totally up to you!

So here goes:


  • ·       12oz Olive Oil
  • ·       3 oz toasted pine nuts
  • ·       6 oz Basil Leave- Cleaned and Chopped
  • ·       1 Tablespoon Garlic
  • ·       4oz Parmesan Cheese ( if you want to serve the sauce with a meat dish omit the Parmesan cheese)
  • ·       Salt and Pepper to taste


  1.  Place 1/3 of the oil in a blender or food processor and add all the remaining ingredients.
  2. Blend/Process until smooth then add the remaining olive oil and blend for a few more seconds.
