Pasta with Pistachio Pesto and White Beans

Pistachio Pesto

So, with a big bunch of basil on hand from our CSA haul, we decided to make some pesto. Pistachio pesto to be specific – based on a favorite bucatini recipe from the now-defunct Tempo. Tina picked up a few things from the coop (receipt to come), including the pistachios and some grated Parmesan. I more or less threw the pesto together on the fly, then tossed it in the pasta, sauteed the beans with some garlic and put ’em on top.

Pistachio Pesto

1 big handful pistachios
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan
1 tsp salt

1. Put it all in the food processor and blend until relatively smooth.
2. There is no step 2.
