Pea Pesto Pasta with Basil and Mint

Made With


Step 1
Bring 2 quarts of salted water to a rapid boil.
Step 2
While waiting for water to boil, add pesto ingredients to a food processor or high-speed blender; start with 1 tablespoon of water or olive oil and increase if needed. Blend until a thick but creamy pesto is achieved.
Step 3
Once water is boiling, add spaghetti and return to a boil. Cook uncovered 9–11 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 4
Drain pasta, and reserve some of the water. Return drained pasta to pot.
