  4. Quarter the tomatoes, scoop out seeds, chop roughly and keep aside. To make the pesto, in a large mortar and pestle or a food processor, mash/process the basil, garlic, extra virgin olive oil and salt until smooth and creamy.
  5. To this add the almonds and mash / process until you get a smooth paste. Add the chopped tomatoes at this stage and mash / process until you get a chunky sauce.
  6. Add any leftover extra virgin olive oil and process until it forms a creamy sauce. Toss the cooked pasta in this sauce. (thin down with some pasta water if you like it that way)
