I love to have my own garden. Food grown in your own garden is simply the best you can have. It tastes wonderful.
Every spring we are waiting eagerly the wild garlic season to start.
Pasta with Wild Garlic Pesto is the familys' favorite. It is so easy to do and just amazing.
200g Pasta. We love the whole durum wheat Fusillis
50g Wild Garlic leaves. Add also some Basil leaves if you have.
30g grated Parmesan. Important to have a good Parmesan cheese. It gives much better flavour.
30g roasted Pinenuts. Roast nuts yourself on the pan without oil.
1 Spring Onion, chopped (optional)
50-100ml Olive Oil. Try yourself to the right consistency.
Cook pasta with salt al dente according to package instructions.
I don't like to use the food processor and just mixing in a bowl together the Wild Garlic (if the leaves are big then cut them in smaller pieces), Parmesan, Pinenuts, Spring Onion with Olive Oil. Season with salt and pepper.
