Home-made Pesto Sauce
This is a version of pesto sauce tailored to the ingredients we had in our kitchen at the time. All quantities are very approximate - we didn't measure anything at the time.
50g of mature cheddar cheese, grated
1 handful of fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp ground almonds
2 tbsp white wine.
Put the basil and the vegetable oil in a small food processor and blend to a rough purée. Mix with the other ingredients.
Chicken Mozzarella Pasta
Slice and fry 1 red pepper, 1 red onion, 2 chicken breasts and 2 cloves of garlic. Boil the pasta, then drain and mix with the chicken and vegetables. Stir in the pesto sauce followed by 125g of diced mozzarella.
