The five nut pesto sauce comes together really quickly in a food processor. The variety of nuts give it texture and the two types of cheese give it creaminess!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Put a large pot of water on the stove to boil and salt it generously. Once boiling, cook the Fusilli Pasta (1 pound) in it until tender, about 8-10 minutes. When it is done, drain it and transfer it to a large, pretty pasta bowl.
Step 2
Combine the Fresh Basil (1 cup). Almonds (1/4 cup), Shelled Pistachios (1/4 cup), Pine Nuts (1/4 cup), Walnut (1/4 cup), Hazelnuts (1/4 cup), Garlic (3 clove), Fresh Parsley (1/4 cup), Pecorino Romano Cheese (1/4 cup), Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup), Salt (1 pinch), and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) in the bowl of a food processor.
Step 3
Pulse it all together until it is finely ground, then slowly pour in the Olive Oil (1/2 cup) it becomes a creamy paste. If it is too thick, pulse in more olive oil until it is to your desired consistency. Thoroughly toss the pasta with the finished pesto sauce.
Step 4
Serve immediately family style with additional grated pecorino romano cheese to sprinkle on top! Enjoy!
