Recipe: Sumertime Pesto

There's nothing better in the summer than a nice pot of Basil (thanks MIL and FIL!)

Look how much I was able to get from one plant already!!

Skill Level: Easy
Items Needed:
Food processor
A medium sized bowl of basil leaves
1/2 cup of nuts
1/2 to 1 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
Average Time: 5-10 minutes

Seriously, look at the size of this leaf!!

So easy to make!

Blend the ingredients in the food processor and toss with fresh pasta.  

Taste it... if it needs more of something, add it to the mix and blend again.

So easy to eat :o)

My 2 year old loves his pesto as does hubby.
