This is my recipe for pesto… my mom loves pesto and every time I have too much basil that might go bad, I do a batch. It’s great on it’s own with pasta, as a condiment, as an ingredient for a salad dressing or to add to a recipe where you would like some fresh basil flavor.
2 tablespoons pine nuts or almonds 3 garlic cloves 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 3 cups basil leaves, strip away the stems 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix everything in a food processor.
Add more olive oil if the mixture seems a bit dry.
Store in a jar in the fridge or you can freeze it in an ice tray for individual servings .
