Handmade tagliatelle with a pesto that is not only cheaper than the classic one, but also delicious!
Today, for the Dinner in 15 column, Chef Sara Lai and wine expert Filippo Bartolotta offer us a dish that is not only cheaper than its classic version, but also if possible even more delicious!
In fact, Chef Sara is preparing some wonderful handmade tagliatelle, accompanied by a basil and almond pesto.
If, like us, you are a pine nut lover, you will know how expensive a few grams can be. Using almonds instead of pine nuts is a perfect solution: they're cheaper, they're semi-sweet, and they go perfectly with Parmesan cheese and EVO oil.
We (who are a bit blasphemous) almost like pistachio pesto better that way!
Filippo uncorked a bottle of Valpolicella DOC from the Bertani winery for us, a wine that goes perfectly with this wonderful, richly flavoured pasta dish.
