'Tis the season for garden fresh produce. So, I thought I would share one of my favorite summer sauce recipes,
Fresh Basil Pesto.
2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves, washed and spun dry
4 Large Garlic Cloves (I use more)
1 Cup Walnuts or Pinenuts
*Combine these ingredients in your food processor bowl and pulse until combined. It should look like this:
1 Cup Olive Oil (with the processor running)
when that is combined, add:
1/4 C. Grated Parmesan Cheese
This picture makes me hungry! :)
Process that in and you'll have this:
You can toss it with any type of noodle, my kids like Penne. This is a great way to use Basil if you've grown it, and it's just a delicious recipe for summer. Bon Apetit!
