What you’re making here is fresh egg pasta, but with a twist that’s positively pesto! Follow  the super easy instructions below, and be sure to check out our visual aide, with Mary Martini of Central Market in “Homemade Pasta Sauces are a Cinch!


Add the garlic, herbs and almonds to a food processor and puree. Drizzle in the olive oil add the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Toss with the cooked pasta. Add some of the reserved pasta water if you need to thin the sauce a bit.
