I think pesto sauce is incredibly underrated. I mean, I know people eat it and it’s served in restaurants on pastas and flat breads etc., but you don’t hear people talking about it much at all. I love pesto and it’s so easy to make on your own so I thought I’d share a quick post on it.
For this recipe, I don’t have exact amounts for the ingredients – it’s a lot of “to taste” and the consistency that you like.
You will need, fresh basil, parmigiano reggiano cheese, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, salt, and pepper.
I start off with a cup of basil leaves and grate some cheese. I use a mini prep to mix it all together to make the sauce. The photos below pretty much explain all the steps!
I’ve only made pesto sauce to eat with pasta, usually penne. But I definitely want to make it next time to use for sandwiches or chicken. I’ll be sure to document that when I do it!
