Pesto makes perfect sandwich spreads, dips and more. It's the best to have some Pesto in the freezer to use all year long.

  • 2 cups basil
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/3-1/2 cup olive oil


  • Add all ingredients except olive oil to food processor. Chop until it's about the consistency of a paste.
  • While food processor is going, stream in olive oil. Add enough olive oil to get the consistency that you like.
  • I prefer it more runny for fresh eating and a little thicker for freezing.
