Ingredients

160 g linguine
Pesto Sauce 1/3 cup
3 tbsp pasta cooking water 45 mL
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 15 mL
salt [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, put the pesto sauce in a small bowl, then add salt (as per the quantity specified in the Pesto Sauce recipe) and the specified amount of pasta cooking water, which will warm up the sauce and will dilute it a bit.
  3. Put the drained linguine back into the pasta cooking pot, add the sauce and extra virgin oil, then mix well. Serve in the warmed dishes.
