This pasta recipe, featuring pine nuts and farfalle pasta, appears courtesy of the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario.

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon pine nuts or walnuts, toasted
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 pound dried or fresh farfalle pasta

Directions:

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the basil, salt and pepper and process for a few seconds until the basil is chopped. Add the cheese, pine nuts and garlic. While the processor is running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream until a mostly smooth sauce is formed. Boil pasta until al dente, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. In a large bowl, toss pasta with pesto. Serve immediately.
