DIRECTIONS

  • Finely chop basil, pine nuts and garlic in processor.
  • Gradually add olive oil through feed tube and process until smooth; mix in ½ cup Parmesan.
  • Transfer to a small jar (can be made up to 4 days ahead – make on the weekend to enjoy a quick, mid-week meal. Pour enough olive oil on surface of pesto to inhibit exposure to air).
  • Bring cream to boil in medium saucepan; whisk in pesto.
  • Season to taste.
  • Combine pasta, sauce and remaining 3/4 cup Parmesan in large bowl.
  • Toss to coat evenly and serve sprinkled with some minced basil.
  • Note: If you want this 'saucier' you can add a little milk to wet the pasta.
