If you have it’ s better to use a pestle, it’s much difficult and maybe it could make you sweat but it’s definitely rewarding! If you have not, or you have not enough time, just use a mixer. Not so bad.
In any case it is delicious.
When it’s done you can conserve in freezer.
For pasta you need to boil and dress with pesto and eventually with olive oil.
