Pesto - Fast & easy!
This is a great treat on pasta, but also delicious on crackers or warm bread as a snack. Try it as dip for bread sticks and even artichokes!
Servings: 4 people
- 2 cups Fresh basil leaves
- 1/2 cup parsley
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 4-5 pieces dried tomatoes (optional)
- 1 TB fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- pepper, maybe salt
Combine basil, parsley, garlic, pine nuts, dried tomatoes (if you're using them) and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse until chopped.
Add olive oil and combine until smooth.
Move pesto to a bowl, mix in the parmesan cheese.
Taste before adding salt or pepper, sometimes parmesan is very salty and so you most likely will not need to add any.
