 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6       ea           Garlic cloves
    1       t            Salt
    1       c            Basil leaves
    1       c            Almonds, blanched &
                         -- roughly chopped
    4       ea           Tomatoes, peeled & diced
      1/2   c            Olive oil
                         Black pepper
    1       lb           Spaghetti
 
   In a mortar pound the garlic, salt, and basil into a
   paste; add the almonds little by little and then the
   tomatoes.  When all ingredients are reduced to a pulp,
   add the oil and pepper to taste (This can be done in
   an electric blender, in which case add the oil at the
   beginning. The texture is quite different, though.)
   Cook the pasta in boiling salted water, drain, and
   toss in serving bowl with the pesto until it is evenly
   distributed. Serve at once.
