Pasta fever started by Hetalia has continued unabated.

Pesto has been our favorite pasta sauce since we found out how to make from scratch a few years ago.

We also love pesto because basil is free, we just have to ask our neighbour for it.

(I am sorry we've fallen out of love with Bolognese sauce)

Recipe for Basil Pesto:

  • Garlic

  • Pine nuts

  • Parmesan cheese

  • Olive oil

  • Basil

Step: Blend everything in the food proccessor. That's all, you get pesto.

Now proceed to the spaghetti, I added in some sliced white button mushroom and beef when the oil is heated.

Just before I remove everything from the pan, I've spooned in 2 tablespoons of evaporated milk because I don't have cream at hand!

P/S: I substituted pine nuts with WALNUTS and CHEDDAR for Parmesan

Use whatever you have.
