4 thoughts on “First Pesto Of the Season

  1. Hey, when you get a chance check out the website for Rossi Pasta located in Marietta, OH. They have a lot of great recipes and ways to use pesto. I know I know this is more about gardening and organic-ness, but they may have some great uses for what y’all are growing.

  2. Sorry.. I posted that quickly from my phone.. Here it is, stolen from a great new cookbook.. I’ll put the link in the post.

    1 garlic clove, peel
    1 cup olive oil
    1 cup grated parmesan
    1/4 cup pine nuts
    2 Cups fresh basil
    ground black pepper

    Combine the olive oil and garlic in a food processor or blender until garlic is pureed. Add cheese and nuts and mix till smooth. Add basil and process again. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

    Note: If you pick your basil before you use it, store it in the freezer, not the fridge, or it will turn black.
