Ok, it’s not summer…. but here is so sunny and warm, it seems like I can smell summer already….

The best way to welcome the sun is preparing home made pesto…it sounds difficult but in truth is  one of the easiest e most delicious thing you can prepare.

The good thing is that you can make  a big amount of pesto and freeze it in little portions ( i use the yogurt container)


fresh basil

1.5 oz parmesan cheese (not grated)

6 tsb extra virgin olive oil

pine nut





the tradition wants to make pesto using mortal and pestel (is that right in english?)

but let’s face the truth….we don’t have too much time ….

So I use an electric blender….it takes less then 1 minute to have homemade fresh pesto!!!

Put everything togheter…. and blend!

Don’t use too much garlic…actually I use only  one tiny slice  which I cut from the clove







There are many ways to eat pesto….today I went for pasta!
