The appealing Basil pesto Pasta is a quick and p dish as breakfast or dinner meal. I would recommend to use fresh basil (to be grown in each home garden or terrace garden) for making basil pesto that is healthy, delicious and nutritious.  This basil loves abundant sunlight and frequent water spray. It will take just 8 minutes to make your own pesto. Pesto means paste or chutney.

The Traditional basil pesto is using toasted Pine nuts as it is originated from Italy. Here, We are using Cashews nuts to make this yummy pesto. We substitute cheese instead of parmesan cheese used in Italian method.

The pesto pasta is pretty easy to make, including the preparation of your own pesto.. 

How to make basil pesto in my method:

basil greens one bowlful
Cashewnuts raw 10-15 pcs
Garlic clove one
Himalayan pink salt 1/2 tsp
Crushed Pepper 3/4 tsp
Olive oil one tablespoon
Grated cheese one cube
Lemon juice half Lemon

Blend to  coarse paste. Set aside.
