Carla Makes White Pesto Pasta | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

Join Carla in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes pasta with white pesto. This is the direct inverse of the usual basil pesto you know and love. It is constructed on a concoction of toasted nuts, cream colored ricotta, and salty Parmesan, with a little kick coming from raw garlic and fresh oregano. You do not need a food processor, a mortar and pestle, or a blender—in fact, the whole sauce comes together in the same bowl you can use for serving.

Cook with confidence using Bon Appetit’s kitchen hints, recipes, video clips, and eating place guides. Remain current on the most recent food trends, dining destinations, and hosting ideas.

    I just made this! Damn, I was doubting that the sauce would come together. I doubted Carla, but it came together. Lesson learned: NEVER doubt Carla.
