Read from the Book

Spaghetti and Pesto Trapanese Pesto alla Trapanese   Pesto has become very familiar in American homes by now—that is, pesto made with fresh basil leaves, garlic, and pignoli nuts. Well, this one is different—it is an uncooked sauce freshly flavored with herbs, almonds, and tomatoes. It is a recipe I discovered in Sicily while researching for Lidia’s Italy, and I have received countless e-mails about this recipe, praising its simplicity and rich flavor. I am sure it will become one of your favorites.   serves 4 to 6 3/4 pound (about 2 1/2 cups) cherry tomatoes, very ripe and sweet 12 large fresh basil leaves 1 plump clove garlic, crushed and peeled 1/3 cup whole almonds, lightly toasted 1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes, or to taste 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt, or to taste, plus more for the pasta pot ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound spaghetti ½ cup freshly grated Grana Padano or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese   Rinse the cherry tomatoes and basil leaves, and pat them dry. Drop the tomatoes into a blender jar or food-processor bowl, followed by the basil leaves, garlic clove, the almonds, hot red pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Blend for a minute or more to a fine purée; scrape down the bowl, and blend again if any large bits or pieces have survived. With the machine still running, pour in the olive oil in a steady stream, emulsifying the purée into a thick pesto. Taste, and adjust seasoning. (
