Pasta Pistou

Posted By Kerri

While researching broad bean pesto this afternoon, I stumbled upon What Rachel Ate Today and subsequently, her recipe for pistou. It sounded just what I needed for a quick dinner this evening and apart from the parsley, I already had the ingredients I needed.

It was certainly quick and easy to prepare, just whizz up all the ingredients while the pasta is cooking but I fear I should have followed Rachel’s measurements as I ended up with a very sharp paste. I rescued it by adding some pinenuts to the blender and accidentally making a kind-of pistou pesto. With some extra black pepper and some parmesan it was a really good dish, although I really should have thought harder about eating raw garlic the night before a dentist’s appointment.

    I had to write a comment as the blog you’re referring to is mine! Being relatively new to the blog community, I’m still discovering all the amazing blogs out there and subsequently spending a LOT of time looking at them, but this is the first time I’ve seen anyone mention mine and I’m SO EXCITED 🙂

    Hi Rachel,

    I wondered if you’d find us, I meant to email you and forgot. It’s great getting comments from new people isn’t it 🙂
