Fettichinni with Basil Cream Sauce

Do you ever open up your full refrigerator, look around
and think ..... what can I make for dinner?

A little of this, a little of that and I was able to make:

Fettichinni with Basil Cream Sauce

fresh basil leaves
garlic cloves
olive oil
cashew nuts
parmesan cheese
heavy cream
salt and pepper

I washed and dried about a cup or so of basil.
Placed it in my food processor with two cloves
of garlic and about a 1/2 cup of cashews.
Pulse on high until completely blended.
Add oil and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and pulse again.

Take the basil mixture out of the processor
and put in a small sauce pan.

Add about 1/2 - 3/4 cup heavy cream.
Heat and stir.
Add a pinch of nutmeg.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Great comfort food. Thick, creamy and delicious!
