Cooking Vegetarian Pesto


Family and friends and friends of my vegetarian daughter have been asking me for the recipe of my vegetarian pesto.  It is an all-time favorite that can be served anytime of the year and even during this Yuletide season. I finally had the time to sit down and write this simple and easy-to-prepare recipe. Here it is.

Vegetarian Pesto

How to cook:

  1. Boil the pasta with oil and salt until al dente. Rinse with water.
  2. Fry the diced vegetarian ham until golden brown. Set aside.
  3. Put the pasta in a big bowl. Pour into the bowl of pasta the basil, olive oil, and vegetarian ham.
  4. Mix.
  5. Dash the ground black pepper and squezzed calamansi.
  6. Mix.
  7. Finish with a sprinkle of grated cheese.
