Noodles with pesto, because a good pasta always goes! No matter if lunch or dinner. Today I show you my variant of spaghetti with pesto alla genovese. Make your favourite person happy and cook him/her the delicious noodles. Again pure relaxation for both of you with a glass of wine … Let the sun in your heart. Here it goes directly to the recipe.

1. How to prepare easy Pasta with Pesto yourself

You can prepare a basil sauce for this dish yourself or use a purchased one. You can find my recipe for pesto elsewhere. I’ll tell you a secret: In every German city there is an Italian speciality shop, where the pesto tastes best, recognizable by its green colour. Boiled basil pesto is always grey and only comes to my table in an emergency. During the ramson season you can prepare these noodles with wild garlic pesto.

Good basil pesto is wonderfully fresh green, not gray!

2. Pasta with Pesto Genovese and Tomatoes

I always combine my spaghetti with basil pesto with caramelized tomatoes so that my dish is colourful and not just a green pasta on the plate. The spaghetti is accompanied by green beans and potato cubes.

First marinate the tomatoes in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, pepper and sugar and put into the oven. Stage hot air at 220°C and 20 minutes is ideal.

3. What goes with Pesto Genovese?

In Italy, the pasta is supplemented with basil pesto, green beans and potato cubes. I cut the potatoes into fine cubes, clean the beans and cut them into bite-sized pieces. I blanch the beans and the potatoes one after the other in boiling salted water.

As a special kick, I like to add crispy fried basil leaves to the served pasta. I fry the basil leaves briefly in hot sunflower oil. Then I put the basil leaves quickly on a kitchen paper to drain them. Please season the crispy basil leaves immediately with a little salt and make ready.

I mix the prepared beans and potato cubes with some basil pesto, so that the vegetables get the right taste. Now I cook the spaghetti and grate some Parmesan in the meantime.

It goes well with pasta with pesto: beans and potatoes.

Drain the al dente cooked spaghetti well, then add to the vegetables in the pan and mix quickly with a good portion of pesto. I add some tomatoes and the stock from the tomatoes, which adds flavour and refreshes the dish.
