FETTUCINE AND PESTO





The Genius Kitchen recipe 
Directions
place basil, garlic, pine nuts, and cheese in a food processor and process about 15 seconds.
With processor still on pour oil in through the tube in a steady stream till all the oil is used.
Turn off processor.
Cook fettuccine in salted boiling water to your taste.
Drain pasta well.

Yeah, that'd work but I've adapted the recipe a bit and taken a short cut with the pesto sauce.

I buy Jamie Oliver Pesto sauce from the supermarket. I've worked out that I can get 3 meals out of the jar. The quality is very good and its much cheaper than buying fresh basil.
I quickly sauté chopped ham or chorizo, sliced capsicum, garlic, spring onion and pine nuts.



I cook fettucine and add the sauté mixture along with some of the pesto sauce, grated Parmesan and lemon juice.



The result? Marvellous
