Note: Use any extra pesto to top cooked vegetables or as a spread for crostini. Stored in a plastic container with a snap-tight lid and covered with a thin layer of olive oil, it will keep nicely in the fridge for 2 weeks.

Recipe Ingredients for Linguine with Jalapeño Pesto

6 pepper Peppers, Jalapeno
5 pepper Pepper, Serrano
1/2 medium raw Onion Red
71 grams Almonds
8 tbsp Oil Olive Light in Flavour
3 clove Garlic
1 box dry Linguine
0.13 cup Bread Crumbs Plain

Recipe Directions for Linguine with Jalapeño Pesto

  1. Make the jalapeño pesto: Place the jalapeños, serranos, onions, almonds and olive oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt to taste.

  2. Bring 8 cups of water to boil in a large pasta pot.

  3. While the water is heating, combine the olive oil and the garlic in a 12- to 14-inch sauté pan, and sauté over medium-high heat until the garlic is almost brown, about 3 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups of the jalapeno pesto and bring to a simmer.

  4. When the water comes to a boil, add 2 tablespoons salt. Drop the pasta into the boiling water and cook for 1 minute less than the package instructions indicate. Just before the pasta is done, carefully ladle 1/4 cup of the cooking water into the pan containing the jalapeño mixture.

  5. Drain the pasta in a colander and add it to the jalapeño mixture. Toss over medium heat for about 30 seconds, until nicely coated, and then pour it into a warmed bowl. Scatter the breadcrumbs over the top and serve immediately.
