Have you ever had pesto, I guess you've had but have you ever tried to make it yourself?
I didn't, until recently and made it often ever since.
It's so easy, there is really nothing to it.
I love to have it with pasta but also as a dip, or on top of a spread with bread.
This is such a delightful recipe, I felt a duty to share it with you.
As you can see it's gorgeous with pasta and cherry tomatoes.
Usually I heat up a dozen of cherry tomatoes for then minutes in the oven at 180 °C. Just cut them in half and sprinkle some salt and pepper on the fleshy top, as well as a drizzle of olive oil.
This dish is ready in 10 minutes.
Anyway, just let me explain how to prepare the pesto.
Ingredients I used:
* A handful of fresh basil
* 3 garlic cloves
* A pinch of salt
* 1 cup of parmesan cheese (powder)
* 1/2 cup olive oil
* 1/2 cup pine seeds
Add all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz well.
It's a very easy recipe with a history.
