Pesto


My boyfriend, Kris, has decided to share his amazing homemade pesto recipe! This pesto is better than any store bought or restaurant pesto I've ever had. Thanks for sharing babe!


INGREDIENTS:

1 4oz pack of basil, destemmed
15-20 small oregano leaves
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
5 garlic cloves
3 TB pine nuts
1 TB red pepper flakes (optional - we like spicy!)
1/3 cup Extra virgin olive oil
Salt 
Pepper


DIRECTIONS:

Rinse basil and oregano gently in cold water.
In a food processor, mix basil, oregano, garlic, and 1/3 cup EVOO.





Add parmesan cheese, and pine nuts and mix well.
Add desired salt and pepper to taste. Also add red pepper flakes (optional).
Mix in more EVOO until you get the consistency desired.




Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! We love to pair this with my no knead bread recipe.

Have a great weekend everyone!
