  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne
  • ⅓ cups Heavy Cream

Preparation

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Then drain it and set aside.

To make the pesto: In a food processor, blend together all of the pesto ingredients from hazelnuts to ground black pepper. Then drizzle in the olive oil as you continue to blend and continue to blend until smooth. Set pesto aside.
