  • 50 g of pine nuts
  • 50 g of grated Parmesan cheese

  • Fresh basil leaves


  1. Blend in a mixing bowl 45 g of pine nuts (we’ll leave the rest for the decoration), the Parmesan cheese, the basil leaves and the olive oil, for 1 – 1.5 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Peel the pearand cut it into slices with a knife, mandolin slicer or similar.
  3. Make some shavings or chippings of the Idiazabal cheese with a peeler or knife. Set aside.
  4. Put the slices of bread on a tray or plate and spread some of the basil pesto sauce on them and on top of that place the spinach leaves, then the anchovies, some chervil leaves and the slices of pearalong with the Idiazabal cheese shavings.
