Cook the Pasta
Cook your favorite uncooked pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, following the package directions for al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving a cup of pasta water to help create a silky sauce. Return the pasta to the pot and generously spoon in the homemade wild garlic pesto, tossing to coat each strand evenly. If needed, add a splash of pasta water to achieve the desired consistency.
Serve your Wild Garlic Pasta in warm bowls, garnished with an extra sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, a drizzle of olive oil for an extra touch of indulgence, and fresh mozarella.

If you can't find wild garlic, you can use regular garlic and fresh basil leaves to make a traditional pesto. You can also experiment with other leafy greens such as spinach, arugula or even kale to create a unique variation on the classic pesto.
This wild garlic pesto pairs well with various pasta types, from spaghetti and fettuccine to fusilli and penne. Choose a pasta that best suits your preference.
If you have leftover wild garlic pesto, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. You can also freeze the pesto in small portions for future use. To maintain its bright green color, pour a thin layer of olive oil on top of the pesto before storing.
Pine nuts can be quite pricey, so feel free to substitute them with other nuts like almonds, walnuts, or cashews. Make sure to toast the nuts lightly before using them to release their natural oils and enhance their flavor.
