Fresh Pesto

Here's a little something that doesn't require much measuring.... just make sure one has fresh ingredients:

Basil (I used some dried from the garden)
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese (grated)
Garlic cloves
Pine Nuts

Have your taste tester make sure all the ingredients are fresh..
and then serve on good pasta and fresh tomatoes

( I usually make some, and freeze some too...--- with the frozen stuff, I dribble a little olive oil on top, so the top layer stays "green".)



  1. I have always wanted to try this - and I see someone else smells that yummy cheese! He says "just a little taste, please." Looks so pretty - all those fresh ingredients.

  2. Hi Janis!
    I want to make basil pesto every summer and freeze it in ice cube trays. I read that somewhere. I never seem to get around to it. Looks delicious!!
