Green Olive Pesto is a simple recipe with only 5 ingredients. However, they create an amazingly flavoured pesto to serve on slices of toasted Italian or other peasant bread. Green Olive Pesto is also a very easy method to introduce flavour to a plain pasta dish. Just cook the spaghetti as normal whilst preparing the pesto. Add the pesto to the spaghetti once drained and toss to cover. Serve with grated parmesan for a fast tasty beautiful looking main dish. The Pine Nuts are blitzed to a fine powder that is absorbed into the pesto and helps create an almost creamy texture.
