You surely have seen a lot of variations of pesto (translated means „crush“). However, I would like to introduce you the one and only traditional way of pesto Genovese (of Genoa, Liguria). A simple, delicious and cold sauce for the pasta.

Spaghetti with pesto sauce | Ingredients: Basil, olive oil, garlic | Easy, quick recipe, vegetarian (with no parmesan = vegan)


I love to make this dish only in spring or summer time, only when there is good fresh basil on the market.

So I had the idea to open the pesto season in my kitchen. And as an occasion I took the birthday of my husband to serve this delicious spaghetti at dinner.

Here is my recipe!

Spaghetti with pesto sauce

  • 400g spaghetti

  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Bring the water to a boil and cook the spaghetti al dente.
  2. Add all the ingredients in a food processor and blend.

  1. I love pesto, but I’ve never made it before. My basil is coming up in the garden now, so this is great timing! I will be using your recipe. My daughter loves pesto too, so I will be the best mom ever!
