I have finally transfered a bunch of photos from tom’s computer/camera to my laptop, so I can fill in some puku blanks.
Here is the walnut pesto I alluded to when I posted my almost perfect walnut cracking, complete with homemade tagliatelle! This was my second round with the pasta roller I got for my birthday (thanks Rob!!) and I’m really enjoying the process (in fact, there is a big ABCD ravioli-off post coming soon!).
For the pasta I think I followed Jamie Oliver’s recipe. The pesto was simply a bunch of walnuts, a handful of basil and a grating of parmigiana, blitzed in the food processor with a bit of seasoning and some olive oil and zest/a squeeze of lemon, and I tossed it all together with some pan-fried mushies and brocolli and a few handfuls of rocket. simple! I really like walnuts, especially in something like this for a change – a bit more bitter/earthy than a pinenut or cashew.
Shout outs to Alex, who was staying with us when I made this – Hi! it was great seeing you and having a week of vege-love and pretentious yoga on the beach!
