1 box Monograno Felicetti Kamut Spaghetti

1 large bunch fresh Basil leaves, washed and dried

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive oil

½ cup Parmigiano Reggiano, grated
1/8 cup Pecorino Romano cheese, grated

¼ cup pine nuts (or your favorite almonds, cashews)


We prefer to use a food processor for the pesto as it comes together super
quickly—the sauce is actually made before the pasta finishes cooking! You want a bright, creamy sauce.
