They’re also known as tallarines verdes or green spaguettis (well, there are two kinds of green spaguettis: with basil sauce and with spinach sauce – we’ll see this later). It’s a very popular way -and inexpensive- to prepare the spaguettis. Usually it’s served with a steak. Yes, they look good; here you have the recipe for 3 people (this is for you, Erin!).
- 1/2 kg of spaguettis # 32
- 1/2 cup of margarine or butter
- 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 bunch of basil
- 2 bunches of spinach
- 2 cloves of garlic, ground
- 150 g (5 oz) of parmesan cheese
- 100 g (4 oz) of peeled and ground walnuts
Put the basil leaves in boiling water for 3 minutes and strain.
Boil the spinach and blend all the ingredients. If the sauce gets thick, add a little of the water where the spaguettis were cooked.
Heat the sauce and mix with the spaguetti.
