Pesto is hands down one of my favorite things to make. I love it in soup, on pasta and spread on a crusty bread. It’s delicious and adds such a wonderful flavor to so many things.
It is one of those recipes thats so very easy to make, if you can get over the cost of the pine nuts.
While traditionally made with a mortar and pestle you can make pesto with your favorite food processor.
Pompeian Olive Oil
Pine nuts, toasted.
Remove the stems from your basil leaves and place them in the bowl of your food processor. Drizzle with Pompeian Olive Oil and pulse the blades to create a paste. Add a generous amount of toasted pine nuts and blend again. Then, lastly, add in the parmesan cheese blend again.
I really love the flavor of Pompeian Olive Oil in my pesto, it brings out the flavors of the basil and pine nuts in a wonderful harmony.
Add to soups, pastas or spread on a bread. However you choose, it will be delicious!
