Benvenuti amici, welcome to Isabella's Bella Cucina. My name is Isabella Morgia di Vicari, and I'm going to share with you my signature pesto with fusilli and feta. It doesn't get any simpler than this. I have the pasta already made, just took it off the stove, boiling, made it al dente, it's absolutely perfect. Now watch how quickly we're going to make this pesto sauce. I'm going to take all of these beautiful basilico. Alright remember, that's basil in Italian, basilico. I'm going to put about four cloves of lalio, garlic of course, a little more in there, some Romano cheese, a little bit of kosher salt, cayenne and if you don't like cayenne, use black pepper, use crushed red, use whatever you'd like. Now here we go. We're going to puree this and while that's moving, I'm going to add the olive oil right here. That's not even a cup, so don't freak out on me. Let's check. We're going to stir it up there. Now if I was making a lot more pesto, you would see a lot more volume in here and I probably could have gotten away with making this in the smaller bowl, that's what I love about these KitchenAid mixers, they are awesome because they have two different sizes. Let's try this, I want to see if it has enough salt which is really important, wow, I nailed this one, right on the head, watch this. I have got my fusilli right here, let's make some space so you can see. I'm going to put as much pesto on this pasta as I'd like. So let's put a little bit on there first, let's stir it up, look at that beautiful green pasta. Now, if you don't like fusilli, use penne, use linguini, anything you would like. I have got to tell you on this recipe, you're going to find me giving you lots of fabulous tips. Now I've got to put some of this in a bowl. I'm going to add some feta to this and you know what, I'm going to add a little more pesto as well, watch this. Love this beautiful feta cheese. I'm going to add a little more pesto, spoon that on, grab a forketta and let's try. Oh I want a piece of that cheese too. This is a wow and your family is going to love you when you make this for them. Viva di bene amici, live well my friends. Buon appetito, ciao.
