Classic Pesto

Unless you grow a ton of basil, it it easier to purchase some basil plants from the grocery store. It is actually cheaper than buying it from those little plastic containers from the produce department. Plus, you can keep them growin to add to your garden.

This is very simple…

Classic Pesto

  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 cups, packed, coarsely chopped basil leaves
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons Asiago cheese
  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

In a food processor, pound the garlic, basil, pinch salt, pine nuts and cheeses into a paste. Gradually blend in olive oil; adjust seasoning.
