start the week right : basil pesto recipe


Happy Monday and welcome to another Start the Week Right healthy and easy recipe... Basil Pesto

Have you ever made basil pesto? It's soooooo easy but the flavour hinges on the quality of the fresh ingredients and a light flavoured olive oil. Worth a try and can be whipped up in mere minutes. Bottle it to give to friends or keep for later. I really love pesto on Bruschetta with tomato, caramelised balsamic and pesto. Needless to say, the food in my photo was eaten seconds after photography. Oh yummy!!! 


Basil Pesto
1 cup fresh basil leaves, firmly packed
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
1/3 cup light flavoured olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan
salt and pepper

Place basil, pine nuts and garlic in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle oil into mixture while processing until it forms a smooth consistency
