Easy Basil Pesto
  • 30-50 fresh basil leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 tbsp almonds
  • 3-4 tbsp parmesan cheese,grated
  • salt to taste
  1. Historically, pesto is made by crushing the leaves with mortar and pestle but of course, I used a food processor to combine and blend all the ingredients. Just put everything inside the food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. If you are going to make Spaghetti Al Pesto, cook spaghetti according to package direction and just mix in 3-4 tbsp of pesto to a plate of spaghetti. Sprinkle grated Parmesan Cheese on top and serve.
