TO PREPARE THE SEA SPAGHETTI PASTA WITH BASIL PESTO

  1. To prepare the basil pesto, mix the ingredients with a blender until the pesto comes together. It's a good idea to cut the basil leaves into small pieces before doing this. If you don't have pine nuts, you can use pumpkin seeds too. For storing the left-overs of the basil-pesto, use a jar and put some olive oil on top of the pesto.
  2. Soak the sea spaghetti for 10 minutes to rehydrate and rinse it, discarding any unsightly pieces. After this, simply boil until al dente.
  3. Add sea salt to a pot of boiling water and cook the spaghetti. 
  4. Cut the cherry tomatoes into half.
  5. Add sea spaghetti, rocket, tomatoes and pesto to the spaghetti and mix well. Garnish with some cheese and basil leaves.
