Fresh Hemp Pesto Pasta
Light dinner on a warm summer evening sure does sound dreamy! This recipe—which includes hemp seeds as well as Lazarus Naturals full spectrum hemp extract—is destined to become your new favorite way to enjoy pasta night and help promote a better quality of sleep!
Makes 4 servings
- 2 cups (packed) fresh basil leaves
- ½ cup hemp seeds, plus extra for garnish
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2-4 ml Lazarus Naturals High Potency Full Spectrum CBD Tincture*
- ½ cup olive oil
- 8 ounces fusilli pasta, or other curly pasta variety
Make the pesto first: To a food processor, add the basil, ½ cup hemp seeds, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and as much Lazarus Naturals High Potency Full Spectrum CBD Tincture as desired. Turn on the processor, and slowly pour in the olive oil to form a puree.
Next, cook the pasta according to the manufacturer’s directions in a large pot of salted water. Drain well, then return the pasta to the pot, and toss with the pesto sauce. Serve warm or cold, garnished with a sprinkle of hemp seeds.
*Use as much or as little of the CBD oil tincture as you like. Or, substitute with another variety of Lazarus Naturals unflavored CBD tinctures.
Tip: If making the pesto ahead of time, transfer it to a storage container (a small mason jar works great), and pour a small layer of olive oil on top to prevent browning. Cover, and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
