Basic Basil Pesto: Date Added: 28 May 2016
Listed in: Extras / Sauces, marinaides & Broths

Simplicity reigns in this traditional sauce—just basil, garlic, cheese and olive oil. Our one modification? We like omega-3-laden walnuts in the mix for their crunch and delicate flavor, but pine nuts, almonds, pecans or even pistachios may be substituted for the walnuts.


2 cup(s) basil, fresh packed
1/4 cup(s) nuts, walnut pieces toasted
1/4 cup(s) cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano grated
3 tablespoon oil, olive, extra-virgin
2 tablespoon water
1 clove(s) garlic
large, quartered
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, black ground

Cooking Instructions

Place basil, walnuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano, oil, water, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor; pulse a few times, then process until fairly smooth, or to the desired consistency, scraping down the sides occasionally.
