Creamy Basil Pesto Pasta Recipe | Pasta with Basil Pesto

Pasta is a favorite recipe for many of us, especially kids. Most of the kids love to have pasta in their lunch boxes. Instead of store bought pasta, we can make our own pasta sauce and prepare the pasta for our loved ones. Basil is a very integral ingredient of any Italian dish. In this pasta recipe, we are making basil pesto using basil, garlic, pine nuts and other ingredients and add that pesto to a creamy base and toss it with cooked pasta. A very enticing and appetizing dish! Most of the restaurants make basil pesto with parmesan  cheese, but parmesan cheese is a not a vegetarian option. Some of the brands sell veggie version of Parmesan, but sometimes its hard to get it. So I skipped the cheese part of the pesto and made this yummy Creamy Basil Pesto Pasta

Method:
  1. Cook the Pasta as per the instructions given in the box of the pasta. I have used 1/2 packet of a 12 oz fusilli Pasta. Bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add salt. When the water starts to boil, add pasta and cool till it is Al-dente. Drain excess water. You can also reserve the water to adjust the consistency of the paste later.

  2. Take basil leaves, pine nuts, garlic cloves, pepper and salt in a mixer jar and grind it to coarse paste

  3. Then, add olive oil little by little and grind everything to a creamy paste

  4. Heat a pan. Add butter. Add fresh cream and cook for couple of minutes.

  6. Switch off the flame. Add cooked pasta and toss well till the pasta is coated well with creamy basil pesto

  7. Serve the delicious hot and Creamy Basil Pesto Pasta and enjoy!!!
