Description

The zucchini pesto in this recipe is more than just a delicious sauce for pasta. Try stirring some into risotto, spreading on sandwiches, using as a topping for crostini, or serving as a dip for a summer vegetable crudite. It's made with hazelnuts, basil, and cheese. Double the amounts and keep the extra in the refrigerator. Here, the pesto is tossed with pasta along with cherry tomatoes, with chopped hazelnuts sprinkled on top.

Ingredients

  • 10 hazelnuts
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • 2 zucchini
  • 20 basil leaves
  • 60 grams parmesan cheese
  • 350 grams fusilli
  • 3 cherry tomatoes

Directions

  1. Add the nuts to a food processor and grind. Set aside half of the nuts. Add a pinch of salt, 2 zucchini, basil, and cheese. Add the oil slowly until the pesto sauce is creamy.
  2. Cut the cherry tomatoes into cubes and drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt.
  3. Cook the fusilli pasta in boiling salted water for approximately 10 minutes until it is al dente.
  4. Drain the pasta and saute it in a pan with the pesto sauce and the tomatoes for a few minutes.
  5. Serve the pasta with a sprinkling of chopped hazelnuts.
