Tasty Thursday #98: Basil Pesto

Welcome back to Tasty Thursday!!

I finally found that pesto isn't a bunch of weird ingredients, but a bunch of my favorite ingredients: basil, garlic, Parmesan! Yummy! I needed it for Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta with Bacon and Veggies that I guest posted over on Girls Gone Food, which is a fabulous recipe by the way.

It's almost tax time and I am hoping to invest in a food processor - is anyone else getting something for their kitchen this year with tax money?

What you need:
  • 2 cups fresh basil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup EVOO
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
In a food processor or blender, pulsate basil, garlic, pine nuts, and Parmesan.

Slowly add in oil and pulse until smooth.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

    I love pesto...the simpler the better. Your recipe is very similar to the one I use.

  3. I love pesto! Recently got hooked on a roasted garlic and basil pesto, and a sundried tomato and garlic pesto. We eat them with everything from crusty bread to pasta! I found your blog on the Thursday blog hop. Thanks
