"Sometimes great flavors don’t need to be complicated, that’s why I love the simplicity of pasta with a quick pesto. This time, we chose pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil to make this recipe a seasonal highlight. And if you ever wondered how to cook the perfect tasting pasta. Here’s my tip: For the perfect pasta, you need 1000 ml of water and 10 g of salt per 100 g of pasta."
