Recipe Notes

 

 

 

  • Cook pasta according to the package and drain set aside I cooked mine for 14-15 min and drained. I find whole wheat cooks longer than the white pasta.
  • While your pasta is cooking this is the time to prep all your ingredients.  
  • Remove the stems from the mushrooms, slice them and set aside, (you can freeze the stems for a soup), chop your shallots,  slice your garlic set aside.  I just nuked my frozen veggies in the microwave just to take the freeze off of them they will finish cooking with the dish in the skillet or pan. 
  • While the pasta is boiling heat up a large pan on medium-high heat add two tablespoons of the olive oil add the shallots cook for about 3-4 minutes stirring constantly add the garlic cook for about  1 minute please do not let the garlic burn, (you will be sorry), add your mushrooms,  Aleppo or red pepper flakes and cook for about 4 minutes stirring constantly.
  • Add the veggies and remaining olive oil and cook for about 4 minutes stirring constantly turn your flame down and check your pasta but monitoring the pan.   If the pasta is not cooked remove pan from the flame until the pasta is cooked or al dente.  
  • Once pasta is cooked drain add to the pan, add soy sauce, stir fry sauce use tongs to incorporate all ingredients for about 2 minutes.  Drizzle the sesame oil and garnish with the toasted sesame seeds and enjoy.
  • Please leave me a message and photo I would love to see your finished dish.
  • *use as many organic ingredients as possible

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 cup organic fresh basil chopped
  • 2 tbsp organic garlic cloves 4-5 cloves chopped
  • 3/4 cup organic pine nuts chopped
  • 1/4 cup organic raw walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese freshly shredded
  • 1/4 cup asiago cheese freshly shredded
  • 1/2 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp juice of a fresh lemon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Recipe Notes

  • Add all the above-mentioned ingredients into the food processor or blender except the olive oil,  salt, and pepper on the pulse setting pulse a few times until mixed well.  Continue to pulse and slowly drizzle the olive oil into the processor or blender once you have a nice spreadable consistency stop the processor add the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Store in a mason jar and freeze, the pesto sauce freezes well and can last well over 6 months,  I normally place plastic wrap over the top of the pesto sauce before I seal it to freeze.  When I am ready to use I Just take the jar out of the freezer and set it on the counter until it soften some and I am able to spoon out what I need to use.  You can also fill an ice tray with the pesto sauce and freeze until ready to use. 

*I add this sauce to pasta, rice, and roasted potatoes just to name a few
