Busiate with Pesto alla Trapanese, Sicilian Recipe


1 Busiate Pasta

1 large tomato, cut into chunks

1 big bunch of fresh basil

¾ cup almonds

2 cloves garlic

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

½ cup extra virgin olive oil


Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Red peppers flakes, to taste


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add in the Busiate pasta and cook it until al dente.

Meanwhile, blend the tomato, basil, almonds, garlic, and parmesan cheese in a food processor or mortar and pestle, until roughly chopped. Stream in the olive oil while continuing to blend. Taste and season with salt, pepper, and red chili flakes. Pour into a large bowl.

Drain the cooked pasta and add to the bowl of pesto. Toss them, then serve immediately topped with more grated parmesan cheese.
