Premium Basil Pesto

There are so many variations on pesto. Which is a good thing! This was a nice, straight-forward version featuring only basil. Very easy to assemble and not too oily. Highly recommended!

Premium Basil Pesto

9 cloves garlic
1 c walnuts, toasted
3 c basil leaves
1 1/2 c olive oil
1 1/4 c Parmesan cheese, grated
1 1/4 tsp salt

Mince garlic in food processor. Add walnuts and process until ground. Add basil and olive oil. Process until basil is chopped. Then, add cheese and salt and puree 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.

Refrigerate or serve immediately. Can be frozen for several months.

Farm box ingredients used: basil, garlic
