Spaghetti Pesto

Do you ever know when you have a real pasta craving, but don’t have the time or the groceries in the house to whip up an elaborate sauce? I certainly do. That’s when I super like to resort to quick and easy sauces that don’t require a lot of groceries. Such is the case with this delicious basil pesto. Quickly whipped up, you just need fresh basil, some olive oil, pine nuts and flaked almonds, and a blender or blender. If you like, you can even just double the amount of pesto and store it in a jar in the fridge for your next pasta craving.
