Ingredients

Ingredients for 8 people

  • 1 box Barilla® Rotini
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 10 leaves fresh basil
  • 1/3 cup Romano cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated

Instructions

  • Cook Rotini according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, add all of the remaining ingredients to a blender, except for ½ cup of the olive oil and Parmigiano cheese.
  • Turn the blender on and slowly drizzle the half cup of olive oil into the blender until the pesto has formed and is blended well.
  • Transfer the pesto to a large bowl, big enough to hold the cooked pasta.
  • Drain and toss the pasta in the pesto. Finish with ¼ cup of Parmigiano cheese.
