    • 30g fresh coriander
    • 6 tablespoons pine nuts
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, or to taste

    • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Place the coriander, pine nuts, lemon juice, feta cheese, salt and black pepper into the work bowl of a food processor, and pulse several times to mince the ingredients. Drizzle in 120ml of olive oil with the machine running, and process until the pesto is a slightly textured paste.
    2. Fill a large pan with lightly salted water and bring to the boil over high heat. Once boiling, stir in the tagliatelle pasta, and return to the boil. Cook the pasta uncovered until the pasta is al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
    3. Place the cooked pasta into a large serving bowl, and toss with the pesto. Drizzle a bit of extra-virgin olive oil over the pasta, and serve hot.

    Super Tasty! We make pesto from about everything that grows in the garden. FYI, Cilantro are the leaves and Coriander are the seeds. Two different flavors.  -  05 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm a big fan of cilantro so I thought I'd give this a try. It was great! Very light and fresh. I was actually surprised at how light the flavor was given that cilantro has such a strong taste. I ended up using 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to give it a little more zip. I served it with whole wheat spaghetti, and really liked the way the flavor of the pesto worked with the nutty taste of the whole wheat. I'll definitely make this again.  -  02 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had purchased a package of gluten-free tagliatelle pasta when it was on sale, so I was wondering what to do with it. I came across this recipe. I love cilantro and I love pesto, so I knew I would like this recipe. It was wonderful! So flavorful and fresh. The cilantro, feta and pine nuts go perfectly together. It was a great side dish to go with the "Greek Style Garlic Chicken Breast" recipe from this site.  -  16 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
