Let’s start with the Homemade Herb Pesto Sauce, ingredients needed for the Pesto Sauce are 1 cup of Pistachio, 1 1/2 cups of greens (spinach, basil, and parsley), 3/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1 clove of garlic, juice of a lemon and pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Toast the pistachios in a small pan over low heat with no oil and butter – stir and shake the pan until the pistachio are fragrant and toasty. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients for the pistachio pesto and pulse until mostly smooth.
As for the Mushroom Pasta, the ingredients you will need for the mushroom pasta are 8 ounces of penne pasta, 4 tbsp of butter, 16 ounces of fresh sliced white mushrooms, 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese, a pinch of salt and pepper and fresh parsley for topping.
