I love this recipe, because you can tailor it how you want it! Here’s what happened to the basil above
Easy Basil Pesto
2 cups Basil Leaves
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Directions: Throw everything into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Use immediately or freeze in an ice cube tray for later.
Fresh, simple, wonderful — you can’t go wrong until you have pesto from fresh basil leaves. You’ll never go back to the canned, store-bought stuff again. (I know I won’t)
P.S. Feel free to throw in some pine nuts. Or dried tomato. Or roasted bell peppers. Or lemon juice. I better stop here because the possibilities are endless!
Note: To get the “pesto ice cubes” out of the tray, let them sit out 15 minutes or run hot water over the bottoms briefly.
“What do you do in the winter?” We get that a lot. A few weeks ago we asked for your guesses: “What do farmer’s do in the winter?”
Well, the farmer who is my husband doesn’t let the winter stop him from growing things.
