PESTO Recipe Illiustration

 / PESTO Recipe Illiustration

I used Winsor&Newton watercolors and Fabriano Artistico Traditional White 12″x18″ paper for this illustration. And some touch of Kooh-I-Noor brown ink.

And here is the recipe:

I prepare it every time with fresh ingredients and never buy it from the super market.
There’s a classic recipe of Pesto alla Genovese, but for a mild taste I use half parsley, half basil. Is easy enough to prepare if you have 20 min and a mixer 🙂
Ingredients for 2-3 persons:
  • basil leaves – 50 gr.
  • parsley -30 gr.
  • parmigiano -50 gr.
  • pecorino romano – 50gr
  • garlic -3-4 cloves
  • pine nuts – 1 tbs
  • extra-virgin olive oil -100gr.
  • sea salt
  • pasta Bavette or Linguine (for 1 person) – 70-100 gr.
You can add some drops of lemon if you like 😉
All ingredients are mixed in the mixer, then combined with prepared pasta in a large bowl.
Buon appetito!
