Pesto 

 I bet someone out there has a really easy to make pesto recipe.  I have some basil and would love to make homemade pesto.  All I would need to buy is the pine nuts.  I have everything else on hand.

Fresh Basil Pesto Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • 3 medium sized garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method

1 Combine the basil in with the pine nuts, pulse a few times in a food processor. (If you are using walnuts instead of pine nuts and they are not already chopped, pulse them a few times first, before adding the basil.) Add the garlic, pulse a few times more.

2 Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add the grated cheese and pulse again until blended. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Makes 1 cup.

I made this last night and it is soooo good.  I served it over pasta with chicken, onions and fresh diced tomato.  Thank you so much.

Thanks for the recipe.  I have a basil plant that is producing very well and just bought a bag of pine nuts and didn't know how to use them.  Now I'm making pesto.
