Don't worry. I'm not at all suggesting Boston Terrier for One-Pot Wednesdays. My friend sent me this photo of her pup, Stella, and I thought it was too cute not to use!

Back to business: Today we're making easy Pasta With Basil Pesto for One-Pot Wednesday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pasta With Basil Pesto adapted from Cooking for Two 2009 by America's Test Kitchen

(serves 4)

6 garlic cloves, peeled

4 cups fresh basil

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Handful of walnuts (optional)

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

1 pound pasta

For pesto, process garlic, basil, cheese, and walnuts in food processor. With processor running, gradually add oil until smooth.

Boil pasta. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Drain pasta, and return it to pot. Add pesto and toss to combine, adding cooking water if too dry. Season with salt and pepper.
