Pesto is Wonderful Stuff

Have you ever tried pesto? There’s nothing like it – how do I describe it? Sweet, earthy, a little spicy. And absolutely addicting!

And what to do with pesto? Eat it on a cracker, spread it on your sandwich with some mayonnaise, toss it with noodles, or add it to any recipe where you just want some extra basil flavor.

Here’s the recipe.

Pesto As It Should Be

3-4 cups fresh basil leaves

4 garlic cloves

1/3 cup walnuts or pine nuts

1/4-1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 cup olive oil

Salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder to taste

Water for texture

This isn’t hard. Why am I even writing directions? Throw everything into a food processor and process until smooth. Take off the lid and smell it. Mmmmm. Try it on a cracker. What does it need? Definitely some more garlic. Or just a little water so it’s not so greasy. Or extra basil if it’s too soupy.

That’s all there is to pesto! Now you know what it is, and you don’t have any excuse for not making it. =) You can freeze it or store it in the refrigerator. I’m not sure how long it will survive in the refrigerator, but it lasts in the freezer for quite a long time.

Do you like pesto? What do you do with it?

Thanks for stopping by!
