Easy Pesto

Thanks to my dad, Papa, I've had a fantastic crop of basil this summer. And you know what basil means right? Pesto!

What you need:
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper
What you do:
Toss the first five ingredients in your blender or food processor.

Blend until the pesto has reached your desired consistency. Feel free to add more oil if needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy on sandwiches, pizza, salads, grilled meats, veggies and of course pasta.
