Coriander Pesto Pasta & Mini Omelettes

Pasta dishes, we just love anything with pastas,..I was planning to prepare pesto with basilic or either with coriander, an italian aromatic paste where italian peoples used to have with pastas, as sandwich spread else with soup, finally i prepared a delicious and flavourful home made coriander pesto with fresh coriander leaves, almond powder, garlic, green chillies, parmesan cheese etc..I prepared this coriander pesto pasta for our sterday's lunch and i served with mini omelettes prepared with grated onions and cooked in appe pan or kuzhipaniyaram pan..Those mini omelettes were so delicious and cute, i served them as skewers..Needless to say that lil ones at home just loved it and really relished the plate..I tried pesto for the first time at home and we loved it..I prepared little bit different from Cham's Cilantro Pesto as her pesto goes for vegan version, while i have added parmesan cheese to enhance the flavour of my pesto.



Coriander Pesto:
2cups Coriander leaves
1/2cup Parsley leaves
3tbsp Almond powder
5nos Garlic cloves
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
1/4cup Olive Oil
1/4cup Grated Parmesan cheese
1tbsp Lime Juice
Salt

1packet Pasta (i used farfalle)
1tsp Oil

Mini Omelettes:
2nos Eggs
1/4cup Grated Onions
1/4tsp Pepper powder
Salt
1tbsp Oil

Blend all the ingredients for the coriander pesto as paste, conserve this paste in an air tightened bottle..Meanwhile cook the pasta with few drops of oil until they turns tender..As my H doesnt like the raw smell of the coriander, i cooked the coriander pesto for few seconds in olive oil before mixing it with cooked pastas,U can add directly the pesto paste to the cooked pasta and enjoy it..

Whish the omelette with pepper powder, salt and grated onions..heat the appe pan with few drops of oil, pour a tablespoon of egg mixture to the appe pan, cook on both sides and serve hot..else place the mini omelettes on the skewer and serve with coriander pesto pasta..

Enjoy!
