Homemade Basil Pesto!
I made my own Basil Pesto today. The basil was out of our garden. It is soooo good. I'm thinking I might take what is left over after I make dinner and mix it with some cream cheese and serve it with crackers! It is absolutely wonderful....I won't be buying pesto anymore. I found the recipe on line.
The recipe comes from Pickyourown.org
2 cups basil, packed
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts (I used walnuts)
3 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
Put everything except for the EVOO in your food processor. Pulse until it forms a paste. Begin to add the EVOO. I added a little salt and pepper at the end. DELISH!
