How To Make Spaghetti with Parsley Almond Pesto
This pasta dish is cooked with parsley almond pesto made with garlic and olive oil for a nutty, fresh spin on the usual basil pesto.
In a food processor, puree the garlic and parsley with salt. With the machine running, add the olive oil in a thin stream.
Add the almonds and pulse to chop.
In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the spaghetti for about 12 minutes until just done.
Reserve ½ cup of the pasta water.
Drain the spaghetti and toss with ¼ cup of the reserved pasta water, the pesto, and the tomatoes.
If the sauce seems too thick, add more of the reserved pasta water.
