Recipe info

  • Yield: Serves 4

Instructions

Boil a large pot of well-salted water. 

Meanwhile, blend all ingredients for the pesto in a food processor or blender, until smooth. 

When water comes to a boil, cook pasta according to package instructions (pulling out one minute early to keep al dente) and saving 1 cup pasta water before draining.

Return pasta to the pot and pour in pesto. Loosen the sauce with pasta water a bit at a time until the pasta is fully coated in the luscious green sauce. Garnish with cheese, herbs or leftover spring veggies. Top with a dollop of Pearl Street Caviar for a simple yet decadent meal.
