Sweet basil pesto recipe (and best pasta for pesto)

thegreekone | Jul 29, 2005 10:23 AM

Dear All,

A friend is dropping off some home grown sweet basil today and I have a hankering for pesto. I know the basic drill (basil, evoo, parm-reg, pine nuts, garlic) but I can;t for my life remember/find the propertions of each ingredient.

Also, what is the best kind of pasta to HOLD the pesto.

THANKS!

p.s. what about wine? (white, red, varietal?)
