PESTO TIME!

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)

Ingredient:

fresh basil

1.5 oz parmesan cheese (not grated)

6 tsb extra virgin olive oil

pine nut

garlic

salt

SERVES 4

Procedures:

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!
