DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta according to package instructions.
  • While pasta cooks, rinse tomatoes and basil and pat dry. Cut tomatoes into large chunks.
  • Place tomatoes in a blender/food processor, add basil, almonds, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth.
  • While machine still running, add olive oil in a steady steam (it will emulsify the mixture into a thick pesto).
  • Scrape pesto into a large bowl. Drop drained pasta onto pesto and toss quickly to coat. Sprinkle on cheese and toss again.
  • Enjoy!
