Hi guys , welcome to Rakhi food with the Bombay chef and I bring world cuisine into your kitchen .
Well , today it is Pesto pasta .
The pasta that I'm using is and the sauce is called Pesto , which is a North Italian sauce .
So let's begin with that for the Pesto sauce .
I have some brilliant fresh basilia .
I'm just reserving a few so that I can use them for garnish later .
So I have some chilled water in this bowl .
I'm gonna add in some casts .
Well , the traditional sauce is made using pine nuts .
I'm using cashew nuts .
Well , you can use almonds .
You can use walnuts .
Choice is yours .
Next goes in some cloves of garlic .
Next goes in some fresh Parmesan cheese , a little bit of salt , a little bit of black pepper and I'm adding in olive oil .
I'm giving it a nice toss so that all of this gets mixed together very nicely .
Well , for the detailed measurements , there's a description box below , please browse through .
So you'll have all the measurements right in place .
A nice toss , this stays aside and here I have a mixer jar in which I'm going to blend this entire thing .
So just let it be for five minutes and then we'll shoot back while this is resting .
I'm heating some water here with some salt .
Now , this is to blanche , the pasta .
I'm just adding in some salt .
Make sure the water is nice and salted .
So here this goes , now that the water has come to roll , boil in , goes the pasta .
Well , now the packet says cooking time , 11 minutes , but we can judge that .
So you can boil it for 11 minutes .
Nine minutes , 12 minutes .
That choice is a personal one .
Well , when it comes to the water , make sure the water tastes like sea water .
So make sure the salt is enough .
So now I'm leaving this to boil for 11 minutes .
Now I'll let this boil in the interim .
If you remember , the Pesto has been marinating here for around 5 to 6 minutes .
Now this goes in the grinder and I'm gonna run this into a fine smooth paste .
Well , to adjust the consistency , I'm gonna add in a little bit of oil .
Make sure you do not add any water to this .
So now this is run into a smooth paste .
I'm gonna check this .
It's looking brilliant .
I'm now gonna transfer this into another bowl .
Yeah , the pasta is almost done just like another minute or so .
So I'll just check for the doneness .
So here if you see there's a little ring which is still a little undone .
Now , this doneness of pasta is called so possibly another minute more and then we move on to preparing the penne pasta in the time being , we start making the sauce .
So the first thing that goes in is some oil , cherry tomatoes .
Just wait for them to .
So a little and now goes in the boiled pasta with a nice stir along with this .
I'm gonna add in a little bit of this water just to make sure the sauce is nice and thick .
Now I'm adding in some pesto sauce and giving it a mix .
Yeah , I'm throwing in some toned basil leaves .
So here you have this lovely pesto pasta ready .
Let's start breathing some fresh cracked black pepper , some grated parmesan , some fresh basil leaves and finally a dash of extra virgin olive oil .
Well , now that pesto pasta is ready , do try it at home and do let us know I move to the next recipe cutting board .
So look way back .
