Crunchy Almond Garlic Basil Pesto Spaghetti

Now that I’ve written that super-fancy title, here’s a not so fancy pasta (basically spaghetti with things thrown in-it’s all in the title). It’s a Saturday night, I’m having friends over, and in a first (in a long time) I’m cooking!

You’ll Need:

  1. 400 g of Spaghetti Pasta
  2. Basil Pesto sauce
  3. Cream
  4. Broccoli
  5. 1 tomato
  6. mushrooms
  7. Black olives
  8. 10-15 almonds, grated.
  9. some garlic


  1. Boil the pasta in a large bowl. Remember to add some salt to the water so that it cooks well.
  2. As the pasta boils (sip on some wine now and then), cut up some broccoli, tomatoes and mushrooms. Put them to boil.
  3. Grate the almonds and keep aside. Cut up 2-3 garlic cloves.
  4. Take the basil pesto sauce and add cream to it.
  5. Now that you’ve got all the right mixes, you just have to put them together.
  6. Take the boiled pasta. Add the basil pesto cream sauce  and the boiled veggies, olives to it. Toss well.
  7. In a small pan, add some olive oil to heat. In 30 seconds, add the grated almonds and garlic cloves. Fry.
  8. Add a bit more olive oil to the almonds and garlic cloves and pour it all over the pasta.
  9. Serve hot! (with sangria, preferably).
