  5. Add drained pasta to the sauce, tossing it, covering every nook and cranny of the pesto.
  6. Add in some grilled chicken or shrimp to spice things up a bit. There is room to be creative with the simple pesto pasta.

Trivia

  • The word pesto comes from the Italian web pestare, which means to ‘crush’ and ‘pound’.
  • Basil can be poisonous to eat before the 10th day of its growth.
  • Pesto is mostly used on past dishes in Italy.

Pine nuts are a key ingredient in some recipes to provide a creamy, thick texture. But they are the primary food for deer and wild board, the two main species which tigers eat the most. Because we’ve been consuming pine nuts faster than their regeneration, we’re taking food from the deer and ultimately, from the tigers. So do think of the environment next time you’re dining on pesto.
