The best pesto ever!

The best pesto ever!

I want to share with you the best pesto recipe on the planet.  Thanks to Sunset magazine for publishing this recipe a few years ago.  It is packed with flavor, not too oily and very versatile.

Basil Pesto

  • 2 cups packed basil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 c. grated pecorino romano
  • 1/3 c. toasted walnuts
  • salt and pepper to taste

Put all of these ingredients in a food processor and whirl.

I have used this pesto as a sandwich spread, topping for broiled fish and sauce for pasta.  It freezes well.  You must try this recipe and I guarantee that you will love it.  Enjoy!
