Easy Homemade Pesto Recipe
  • 2 Cups of Fresh Basil Leaves
  • ¾ Cup of Olive Oil
  • ½ Cup of Parmesan Cheese
  • ⅛ Cup of Pine Nuts
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  1. Optional - toast the pine nuts on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes at 350
  2. In a small food processor or blender - place all the ingredients except for ½ cup of oil
  3. Start to blend/process - slowly add the oil - once the oil is fully added to the pesto - keep blending for another minutes
  4. Give it a taste -- add a bit more salt or pepper if it needs it
  5. This sauce can be kept in a mason jar for up to 10 days
  6. I love to use it on pasta, veggies, or chicken
