Grated Egg Pesto Pasta
This recipe is a fun twist on the viral pesto eggs recipe. Instead of bread, it calls for cooked pasta, and instead of pan fried eggs, you’ll use grated. The grated eggs make this recipe creamy, rich and delicious.
Boil a pot of water and cook 4 ounces of pasta al dente.
Reserve about ½ cup of pasta water and drain the pasta in a colander. Set it aside.
Grab a food processor, and combine basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, olive oil, pine nuts, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Buzz until well combined.
In a large sauté pan, over medium heat add butter.
Once the butter is melted, add the cooked pasta, homemade pesto, and a touch of the reserved pasta water. Stir until well combined.
Add the pasta to a bowl and grate parmesan cheese over the top.
Next, you’ll grate one hard-boiled egg over the top.
Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
Serve hot with a wedge of lemon.
