Sweet & Savory Tuesday - Presto with the Pesto!


  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Dash of kosher salt, optional

  • When selecting fresh basil, make sure to remove any seed pods which have formed in the very top of the plant

  • Place basil leaves inside food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped
  • Add the garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan Cheese
  • Process until smooth

  • Prepare noodles (I used spelt noodles, but spinach noodles would be delicious as well), and serve with Pesto

  • Pesto is great on pizza crusts, slices of baguette bread or fresh tomatoes, crackers, mixed with sour cream to be used as a veggie dip, and on rolls the herbal river.
  • Pesto can be frozen and eaten at a later date.

If you have other serving suggestions, I would like to hear from you!  Please leave a comment.  We enjoy hearing from our blog readers.

Happy Dining & Enjoy the herbs of summer!
