As you know, on Monday the market of local producers of fruit, vegetables and cheeses is a MUST for the supply of my kitchen. As well as all the vegetables, I also bought lots of celery that I needed to make panzanella. During the arrangement of all the products in the refrigerator I realized that I had no place for the leaves of celery…
So I tried to find a solution to the problem of space in my refrigerator … and I decided to make a pesto with the leaves of celery…
I did not say anything to the family and I served pasta with this pesto and everyone asked me what I had put in it as it was so good?
So you should try too, it is very easy:
- 200 g celery leaves
- 50 g almonds
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Salt & Pepper
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 400 g Penne
Blend all the ingredients together, the result must be very liquid.
Cook the pasta in abundant salted water and at the same time warm the sauce in a large pan, where you will then put the pasta “al dente” with a bit of starchy water.
Serve with plenty of Parmesan or if you prefer grated pecorino.
