About Basil pesto, yes I know we can get it from local supermarket but sometimes it is really fun and pleasant just you make it at home from scratch.

In most of pesto recipes , Parmesan cheese is used but I had Mozarella cheese in the fridge and I used it. I should say, it was very good.

پاستا با سس پستو

سس پستو یکی از انواع سس های ایتالیایی هست که بسیار خوشمزه و بسیار پرطرفدار هست و از همه مهم‌تر بسیار بسیار آسون میشه اون رو در منزل تهیه کرد و همراه با انواع پاستا – ماکارونی – اسپاگتی استفاده کرد- میشه روی نون تست گذاشت و لقمه گرفت. میشه روی سالاد ها به عنوان سس استفاده کرد و یا با سبزیجات پخته مثل سیب زمینی آبپز شده مصرف کرد. رنگ سبز و تازه ی این سالاد همراه با عِطر ریحان و سیرواقعن فوق‌العاده هست.

سس پستو رو میشه به راحتی از فروشگاه ها و سوپرمارکتهای محل زندگیتون میتونید بخرید ولی گاهی مزه میده اگر بتونید در منزل خودتون اون رو درست کنید چون فقط با چند ماده ی اولیه به راحتی میشه در عرض دو سه دقیقه این سس خوشمزه و خوش رنگ رو درست کرد.

برای درست کردن سس پستو روش‌های متفاوتی وجود داره و مواد مورد نیاز شامل ریحان ‌‌ و همینطور دانه‌ها کاج – بادام – گردو – بادام هندی هست که می تونید هر کدوم رو داشتید استفاده کنید.

یکی دیگه از نکته‌ها در مورد این سس استفاده از پنیر هست که به صورت سنتی از پنیر پارمزان ( پارمیجانو) – پنیر فیور ساردو- پنیر پکورینو ساردو یا …..…. استفاده میشه و من با پنیر مازارالا درست کردم که بازهم خیلی خوشمزه شده بود.

مواد لازم برای سس پستو

دو پیمانه برگ تازه ی ریحان فرنگی ‌‌‌

سه حبه سیر

نصف پیمانه روغن زیتون

نصف پیمانه دانه ی کاج – گردو- بادام هندی یا گردو

یک چهارم پیمانه پنیر پارمزان یا هر پنیری که در بالا ذکر شد

نمک و فلفل به میزان لازم

مواد لازم برای پاستا

سه پیمانه پاستای پنه – هر چند می تونید از هر پاستایی که خواستید استفاده کنید

چند عدد گوجه‌فرنگی ریز گیلاسی

نمک و فلفل به میزان لازم

طرز تهیه

برای تهیه سس پستو – برگ‌های ریحان- بادام – سیر – نمک و فلفل و مقداری از روغن زیتون و پنیر را داخل غذاساز ریخته و برای چند ثانیه مخلوط کنید وقتی همه ی مواد به صورت پوره در آمد باقی روغن زیتون را هم اضافه کرده و هم بزنید.

سس پستو آماده هست کنار بگذارید تا پاستا را حاضر کنید.

خیلی ساده ماکارونی یا پاستا را آبپز کنید. یعنی مقداری آب را داخل قابلمه ریخته و نمک به مقدار مناسب اضافه کنید وقتی بجوش آمد پاستا را داخل آبجوش ریخته و بگذارید برای 15-10 دقیقه پخته و نرم شود یا دستور تهیه ای که در روی بسته ی پاستا نوشته را انجام دهید. وقتی پخته شد داخل آبکش ریخته تا آب اضافی خارج شود.

داخل تابه کمی روغن ریخته و گوجه های گیلاسی را دو سه دقیقه تفت بدهید تا کمی نرم شوند. سس پستو و گوجه ها را به پاستا اضافه و با هم مخلوط کنید.

زمان سرو کمی پنیر رنده شده و روغن زیتون روی پاستا ریخته و میل کنید. مطمئنم از این پاستا لذت خواهید برد.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
