Making your own fresh pesto is so quick and super easy!!!
2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts or walnuts
2-3 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In the food processor start with the garlic. I like to start with the garlic because it gets it minced evenly and you are not left with big pieces of garlic. Once you have the garlic minced, add the basil and pine nuts. Slowly add in the Olive Oil.
You can enjoy this pesto on anything... I love pesto!!!
Here are a couple of other recipes!!!
Thanks to The Clothes Make the Girl for the suggestion of tossing zucchini noodles in pesto!
I topped mine with some toasted roughly chopped pine nuts!
