  2. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente. Set 125 ml (1/2 cup) of cooking water aside. Drain the pasta.
  3. In the same pot, combine the pasta with the pesto. Add cooking water as needed. Adjust the seasoning.
  4. Garnish with Parmesan cheese shavings.


Serve this pesto with white fish, in an omelet, sandwich or even a salad dressing.
