Pesto Pasta

I think I’m on a green colored trend at the moment.

In only 25 minutes, I cooked dinner for two.  Pesto sauce is super easy to prepare and only requires a few ingredients.  Although, having a food processor would be helpful.  Here’s the recipe–

4 ounces of fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup of pine nuts

3 cloves of garlic

3/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated

olive oil

S&P to taste

  1. Combine basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts in a food processor and chop.
  2. Add in the cheese and blend a little more until incorporated.
  3. Start drizzling olive oil into the basil mixture and process until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
