Shout-Out to my Favorite Italians
I would like to take a moment to give a shout out to my favorite Italian celebrities at the moment. To name a few, Giada de Laurentis*, Giuliana Rancic* and of course who could forget JWow, Snooki, The Situation, Ronny, Pauly D, Vinny, and Sweetheart of MTV’s The Jersey Shore. You all gave me a new meaning to life.
Can I get a fist pump? Remember to start out low, and pump higher and higher up to the sky.
To commemorate these individuals and having the nerve to be on television, I made basil pesto over spaghetti noodles. So slap on a fake tan, a Bump It, a scantily clad top (often misconstrued for dental floss) and read away at this Italian goodness.
*Giada and Giuliana – my sincerest apologies for putting you in the same category as the Jersey Shore buffoons. My admiration for the two of you has not changed. FIST PUMP, Evie
Basil Pesto over Spaghetti
- 1 chopped scallion
- ½ chopped green pepper
- ¼ cup of diced almonds
- 1 cup fresh basil leaves
- ¼ cup of sour cream
- ¼ cup of parmesan cheese
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- ½ pound of linguine or spaghetti
- Salt and pepper
Boil a large pot of water. Once it boils, add noodles and cook for about 8-9 minutes. For the basil pesto, place the first six ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until it’s creamy. Pulse while adding the olive oil as it emulsifies into the mixture. Pour mixture on top of noodles. Sprinkle some more parmesan cheese on there. Fist pump for a job well done.
