I’ve always been afraid to make my own pesto. I love the store brand pesto so much, I was sure I couldn’t top their stuff! I finally mustered up the courage and gave it a go anyway. It turned out pretty close to store-brand taste, and I got to snack on the ingredients as I was
cooking food processing!
2 C. fresh basil
1/4 C. pine nuts
1/2 C. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt (or more to taste)
1 cube (1″x1″) of Romano cheese, broken into crumbles
1/2 tsp. sugar
Put everything into a food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it!
