Fresh Basil Pesto Recipe

Fresh Basil Pesto Recipe

Nothing says summer like fresh basil.  I love this simple recipe that can be used immediately over pasta or frozen in muffin trays to bring back the feeling of summer in the dead of winter.

Method:-

Place the following ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth.  

1/2 to 1 cup olive oil 
3-5 cloves garlic 
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1/4 - 1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese

No basil?  You can also use a big bunch of parsley when basil is not in season.

When freezing your pesto, top your muffin tins with a wee bit more olive oil to keep your pesto nice and green.  Then tap out frozen pesto portions into a ziplock bag to store in your freezer.
