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 - easy, delicious Italian Pasta sauce - Ingredients: basil, garlic, nuts, parmesan, olive oil! Easy recipe!

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!
