A sauce that is loved and used often in Italian Homes is the beloved ‘Pesto alla Genovese’. The word Pesto applies to any combination of herbs ground with a mortar and pestle.
I love making fresh natural herby, veggie or natural food based pastas. With the spinach, when you add the olive oil and marjoram, season to taste with salt and pepper, you end up with a magnificent Spinach Tagliatelle.
This filling is very simple but tasty and they are always served at important occasions – this recipe is my version but every family has their own recipe.
I love showing off with this recipe because I like the way the pink beetroot shows through the fine pasta and how the black poppy seed butter sauce, challenges your taste buds.
