Bill Granger recipe: Pasta with parsley, anchovy and pistachio pesto
Sunday 16 February 2014
I also like to serve this pesto with barbecued meat or fish – it's particularly delicious with lamb.
75g roasted pistachios, roughly chopped
12 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
14 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra to serve
1Large bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves only, roughly chopped
11 red chilli, finely chopped
2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped
15 tbsp olive oil, plus extra if storing
1400g garganelli or penne pasta
To make the pesto, place the pistachios, garlic, Parmesan, parsley, chilli and anchovy in a mortar and pound lightly with a pestle. Add some sea salt then stir in the oil.
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente. Drain, keeping back a ladleful of the cooking water. Return the pasta to the pan and toss through the pesto, adding a little cooking water to loosen, if needed.
Serve immediately with grated Parmesan.
