Pesto!

Basil anyone?

I love the smell of basil. I mean I reeeaaallly love the smell of basil. Know what I love even more? The taste of basil, especially in pesto. Oh, YuM!

It’s easy peasy. Grow basil (or buy fresh from the store).

 

Grab ‘yer blender and get blendin’.

2 cups lightly packed basil

1 cup olive oil

1-2 cloves garlic

1 cup parmesan cheese

 

This time, since I was making it for a pizza sauce, I added lots of extra olive oil & parmesan cheese. YuM! If you’d rather use it for pasta, just drop your olive oil to around 2/3 cup and your parmesan cheese to around 1/2 cup.

EnJOY!
