Pesto Recipe

All Ingredients

fresh basil

Fresh Parsley

This is how your pesto should look if you want to freeze it. Drizzle olive oil on top to keep pesto from coloring

Pesto Recipe:
1 Cup Fresh Basil
½ Cup Fresh Parsley
3 Tbs Pinenuts
3 Tbs Parmigiano Reggiano
2 Cloves Garlic
1 ½ tbs Lemon Juice
½ Tsp Kosher Salt
½ Cup extra Virgin Olive Oil
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor till it is chopped very finely. Then turn on processor and slowly add in the extra virgin olive oil. Once well mixed recipe is complete. Eat within in the week.
*If you are going to freeze the pesto, put it in a freezer safe dish. To protect the pesto from coloring, pour some olive oil over the top of your pesto before you freeze it.  Just enough to coat the top layer of the dish.

Have a great Monday everyone!
