sundried tomato pesto pasta

sundried tomato pesto pasta

Yields6 Servings

 140 g sun dried tomatoes (including 2 tablespoon of oil they come in)
 2 garlic cloves
 2 tbsp parmesan (plus extra for serving)
 1 large bunch basil
 12 whole almonds (skin on)
 500 g whole wheat spaghetti

1

Bring a large saucepan of water to boil, salt well then cook the pasta according to the packets instructions.

2

Whilst pasta is cooking, put all ingredients except the pasta into a food processor and blitz until thick and nubbly. It may seem a little thick now, but the pasta water will thin it out and make it stick to the pasta.

3

Before draining the pasta reserve a cup of the cooking water. Add a little of the pasta water to the pesto to make it a little more pliable. Combine pasta and pesto. Using a wooden spoon amalgamate the pesto with the pasta, add more pasta water if necessary so that the pesto coats every strand.
