LET’S MAKE PINK PESTO!
For two people you will need:
1 clove of garlic
½ cup of toasted pine nuts
2 red beets, cooked, peeled and chopped (you can buy them already cooked)
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ cup Pecorino cheese (or Parmigiano, if you prefer a less intense flavor)
Salt and pepper
The instructions are ridiculously easy. All you have to do is to combine these ingredients in a food processor and blend until they are smooth. At the end, add salt and pepper to taste. And voilà, your pesto is ready to meet your pasta, mandatory warm and “al dente”! Garnish with toasted pine nuts. Here is Magnifico’s stunning selection of pasta Cuomo. Just make sure to choose a good shape like spaghetti or penne!
