Trofie pasta with walnut pesto

IMG_4699

Hi everyone this evening I was in a mood for a nice pasta, but not the usual one with tomato sauce. Few weeks ago I made walnut pesto for vegetarian lasagna and realize that I had some left in the fridge for this evening. Original pesto is made with pine nuts but I am not a fan of it that is why I made mine with walnut.

When you cook the pasta slice 30gr of chop green beans and 30gr diced potato and let it cook with the pasta. When pasta is ready drain the water and add 2 tablespoon of pesto drizzled with EVO oil and grated Parmesan cheese.

If you don’t have time to make fresh Pesto just buy a good quality one at the supermarket.

I love spicy food and this recipe brings back memories of Bangkok and the super tasty and spicy food that was everywhere in this beautiful city. The lower floor of Siam Paragon right opposite the supermarket had this huge selection of street food where I use to lose myself tasting everything possible.
