Pesto Sauce
This is a versatile sauce with many applications: serve your pesto with hot drained pasta, grilled chicken, baked pumpkin or hot jacket potatoes. Pesto is traditionally prepared by pounding it with a pestle in a mortar--however, a food processor is a great way to save time.
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons of pine nuts
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
Directions:
  1. Blend the chopped basil, oil, garlic and nuts at high speed until pureed.
  2. Pour mixture into a bowl, add salt and mix thoroughly.
Variations:
  • Use equal quantities of parsley and marjoram instead of basil and pine nuts.
  • Use parsley and walnuts instead of basil and pine nuts.
  • Use ground almonds with basil instead of pine nuts
  • Use equal quantities of parsley and basil.
