Traditional Ligurian pesto pasta recipe

by Barbara
(Elgin, IL USA)

This pesto pasta recipe sounds so good to me, I just have to try it.

However, I'd like to know if I can effectively increase the ingredients in orer to feed 8-10 people? I'm asking because sometimes I know that simply increasing the ingredients ruins the recipe.

What do you think? Or do you have a similar recipe for a crowd?

Thanks for your help,


Answer:Hi Barbara.

Yes indeed... this is one recipe in which the ingredients can be just multiplied.

Just one tip - you might need to make the pesto in a couple of small batches if you only have a small pestle and mortar.

We serve this dish up in a big bowl to mini-crowds all the time. Suffice to say they love this crunchy and superemely flavorful offering. Especially when smothered over freshly made pasta!

Buon appetito!
