Course: Appetizer, Ingredients
Servings: 1 Cup
Author: Avery Z Chipka
Ingredients
  • 2 Cups Packed Fresh Basil
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Fresh Italian Parsley
  • 1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Pine Nuts
  • 1/4 Cup Grated Pecorino Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Put absolutely everything on the above list in a food processor, and pulse until coarsely chopped. Different people like pesto at different textures, so run the food processor until the pesto is at your thickness preference.

  2. There are a huge range of things you can use pesto for, but one of my favorites is just on some good old fashion wheat crackers.

  3. If freezing transfer to zip-lock bag and drizzle about 1/3 cup olive oil over the top. Freeze for up to 3 months.
