  • The MOST AMAZING pesto recipe!

    [caption id="attachment_784" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Fresh Pesto is the Best Pesto"]Bowl of pestp[/caption]

    Here's a recipe my mother has for her homemade pesto! It's all homegrown with fresh basil that we grow in our backyard. Make it a summer project. First, start by getting your own vegetable garden together! Makes a great summer project! If gardening isn't your thing, then start by going to Zagara's and picking up the following ingredients:

    - 2 tablespoons pine nuts

    - 1 garlic clove, crushed

    - Kosher salt and black pepper

    - 1 1/4 cups of FRESH basil leaves

    - 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated

    - 2 ounces Pecorino cheese, grated

    - 1/2 cup of exrta-virgin olive oil

     

    To make the Pesto, place the pine nuts, garlic, salt and pepper, basil and the cheeses in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse till the basil is mashed up. With the machine still running, and the oil gradually and process until creamy and smooth. Let it chill for a bit.

    And that's it! So easy. So grab some pita chips, crackers or spread it on your burger (thank you bobby flay), and a nice cold drink, and enjoy your freshly made pesto.
