After spending the morning in school (yeaah statistics in the morning.. kill me now) I got a text from a friend asking if I wanted to go on a lunch date with her! We bought thai food and were both so tired we were constantly laughing! After realizing that we turned on the TV and watched Peter Pan (I was soo in love with the guy who played Peter when I was younger.. )
Anyway… Now I have to go make some pesto! I love mine with a lot of cheese and garlic….
Makes approx. 1 cup
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
2 cups fresh basil leaves, washed and patted dry
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
2 garlic cloves
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
In the bowl of your food processor, combine the basil leaves, parmesan cheese, garlic cloves and salt. Process for about 10 seconds, then slowly pour the olive oil through the feed tube until the pesto is thoroughly pureed. That’s it!
Too spice it up, put some chili in it! Or lemon?
