Basil Pesto Sauce

Pesto is one of those wonderfully magnificent sauces that my husband hates.
More for me.
This year I grew basil.  Specifically for this sauce.
It was well worth it.
Basil Pesto Sauce
Recipe from Our Family Treat

1/2 c. pine nuts
1 large garlic clove
2 c. fresh basil
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
extra virgin olive oil

Pulse everything but olive oil in a food processor.
Add extra virgin olive oil until right consistency.
This is perfect for pasta, sandwiches, pizza, you name it!

  1. That's funny, Kristen grew basil in her garden for the same reason and has been making pesto sauce all summer. Hers looks a lot thicker than yours. I'm going to send her a link to this recipe. It sounds like the same stuff, but she'll enjoy seeing the picture.
