almonds and basil pasta













A little tired of sweet and dessert??
 Here we have something savoy and delicious and also easy to make.
The incredible thing I did two weeks ago and basil was lovely, now with the cold days (we are in autumn) that have already started to decline but the Northern Hemisphere are fortunate fresh basil so enjoy this recipe.

Note:

This yummy recipe is for one or two persons, if you want more double the ingredients.





Almond and basil pasta

Ingredients (2 servings)

70 grs. almonds in slices
300 grs. pasta
1 cup chopped basil
1 garlic  clove (mashed)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoon of cream
salt an pepper

Method


In a baking sheet place the almonds and cook by a while in medium heat.(3 a 4 minutes)
When are little golden take out, and reserve.
I use the almonds without toast but make as you like.
 In a pot of boiling water and salt cook pasta according to directions or until "al dente".
 Drain the pasta and pour into the pot, add the basil, garlic, oil, salt  pepper  and cream.
Heat over medium heat and serve immediately with reserved almonds.

Pasta con almendras y albahaca











Si estan un poquito cansados de dulces y postres aquí traigo una receta deliciosa y salada.
A veces la gente cree que uno come puros dulces, claro que no, pero sobre todo para las comidas es casi imposible tomar las fotos la cocinera está demasiado ocupada.
pero cuando cocino más tranquila como este caso (hago cosas más pequeñas cuando estoy sola)
Lo increíble que cuando hice esta receta la albahaca aún estaba en su esplendor ahora con las heladas ya están más decaidas estamos en pleno Otoño cerca del Invierno.
pero no se preocupen tengo congelados una buena reserva de berries.
Y sé que habran dias con sol. Aún no llueve.
Bueno ahora la receta.
Está pensada para dos porciones ( o tres) pero si quieren para más doblan los ingredientes.


Ingredientes

70 grs. de almendras
300 grs. de pasta
1 taza de hojas de albahaca picada
1 diente de ajo (molido)
3 cucharadas de aceite oliva
3 cucharadas de crema
sal y pimienta

Preparación

En una bandeja de horno colocar las almendras en láminas y dorar un poco, unos 3 o 4 minutos.
Reservar.
Yo usé las almendras sin tostar pero tostadas quedan deliciosas.
En una olla con agua caliente hervir la pasta con un poco de sal.
Cocinar según las instrucciones o hasta que esten "al dente".
Colar la pasta y agregarle el ajo, albahaca picada, aceite, sal y pimienta y la crema.
Clentar la olla un poco y agregar las almendras tostadas y servir.
Buen provecho.

  3. Hola Gloria:
    Este plato me encanta. Mi mamá lo solía hacer cuando yo era chica, pero en vez de almendras usaba nueces y estaba realmente rico. Probaré esta variante tuya.
    Un abrazo y buen fin de semana

  35. Simple, delicious, nutritious - and completely new to me! I love it! I cannot wait to try this recipe! This kind of inspiration I really appreciate. I have been in a super slump lately after the Eat Alberta conference we put on here. I knew I needed time to catch up - but didn't expect it to take this long. I have hardly posted all year, and my reading and commenting used to be daily with tenacity and I wouldn't miss anyone's post - but I am just overwhelmed. Thank you visiting my site again and forgiving me for my absence! It means more than you know. I have been so inspired here this morning!
    :)
