Homemade Pesto Recipe

Homemade pesto is one of my favorite recipes to have during the summer! I LOVE fresh herbs and easy recipes!!


2 Cups of basil (I used basil and parsley)
1 Cup grated cheese
1 Cup olive oil
3 TBS of garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Pine nuts ( I didn't have any so I used walnuts!)

So as you can see I substituted some can make it anyway you want which is the best part about making this! You can use ANY kind of nut, and mix your herbs!

Get your herbs:

Blend them:

Add olive oil:

Add cheese:

Add garlic and nuts:


Boil pasta and drain:

Tip: place a Tbs of olive oil in the water with 2 Tbs of salt  ( before water boils) this will help the pasta from sticking to itself.

Place pasta in a bowl and place pesto on top. Mix~



It is as simple as 1-2-3!!
