Squash Pesto Pasta with Hazel & Pine nuts

I was already to go with a recipe I found on the internet and then realized my local grocer didn’t have all the ingredients I needed. I improvised and came up with this:

In food processor blend:

1 large clove of garlic

1/2 cup of olive oil

1 cup of basil

salt & pepper

1/4 cup of hazel nuts

1/4 cup of pine nuts

1 cup of cooked squash (I used frozen)

*Optional: 1/4 cup of cilantro*

Makes enough for 4 servings of pasta.

Garnish with whole hazel & pine nuts.
