Sicilian Pesto Pasta

You will need:

  • 500 gr ripe tomatoes
  • 1 large bunch of basil
  • 1/2 cup of virgin olive oil
  • 100 gr Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 50 gr pine nuts
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 150 gr ricotta cheese
  • salt, pepper

Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the white inner parts near the stem, the seeds and the excess liquid. Add all the ingredients in the blender container and mix everything together, controlling the degree of creaminess. Season with salt and pepper.
