Colorful pasta with homemade basil Pesto

Welcome to Italy!
As promised, we were able to shoot few recipes during our Italian holiday 🙂 We are in Ospedaletti, in a region called Liguria, northern Italy, next to the French border. My family has a beach apartment there and I’ve been going there since I was born. Almost every summer of my life has a memory of Ospedaletti, that’s why I really wanted Luca to start having his first “beach” memories there too!

The green warm sea and lovely weather are not the only beautiful things in Ospedaletti…let’s talk about food 🙂
I’m going to share with you a very traditional recipe from Liguria: pasta with homemade pesto.
Today at the local farmers’ market everything was sooooo inviting that it was difficult to choose from. The basil won. I could smell its fragrance from far away..and so many varieties!!

This is a super duper yummy recipe for your kids and for the whole family!
It’s good for babies too! I would say starting from 7 months. Just few comments. For babies choose a small shape baby pasta (pastina). You can also choose not to use garlic and pine nuts if you are afraid of allergies, even if, in my personal experience with Luca, I didn’t have any problems with them.

Enjoy and see you next week with another recipe from Italy!!
