Day 17: Pesto
Pesto is another thing I’ve been wanting to try to make myself but never gotten around to. As it happend we randomly had fresh basil for a dish we couldn’t remember what we bought it for. So I decided to give it a go.I ended up freezing it as we had a lot of lasagne leftover still to eat.
It tasted lovely though and I look forward to trying it in a dish.
- 60g Basil leaves
- 40g Pine nuts
- 30g Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
- 1 Garlic clove
- Light olive oil
Chuck it all into a pot to be blended except the oil. Once it’s smooth, slowly add oil until it looks right.
