We like pesto! It's my favorite summer dish...so easy to pick some basil and throw it in the food processor with some garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. I have substituted walnuts for the pine nuts in a pre-Eleanor life, but have found that no nuts are needed. It's still wonderful with even fewer ingredients.
I don't measure, and it never turns out quite the same way twice.
2 c basil
2 garlic cloves
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 Parmesan cheese
Couldn't be easier! Throw everything in the mini food processor and whir until the desired consistency.
For a bit of variety in the next few days, I am planning on topping pizza with pesto and roasted vegetables.
