Perfect Pesto

One of my all time favorite pasta’s are pesto pasta.  It’s also one of the easiest pasta’s to make with only five ingredients and no stove required to make the pesto.  The most important ingredient in the pesto is the basil which lucky for me is one of the herbs I grow in my garden and grows like weeds.
Fortunately I will have the pleasure of pesto all summer.


3 cups of fresh basil
1/2 cup pine nuts
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup parmesan and asiago mixed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper


In a blender mix the basil, garlic, pine nuts and cheese.  While the blender is running, add the olive oil and salt and pepper.

Just that easy!

Serve with angel hair pasta

Store:  Store in a air tight jar with 1 tbls of olive oil drizzled on top in the refrigerator for up to one week.
