Look at the color of this pesto. It is incredible and will zest up any recipe. Top on pasta, veggies or even a burger. You will love the flavor of fresh, homemade pesto instead of a jarred, storebought version.



1. Prep basil (2 cups packed), by removing the leaves from the stems.
2. Place the following ingredients in your blender or food processor in the following order: olive oil, basil, garlic clove, lemon juice, walnuts, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.
4. Blend to desired consistency.
5. If dressing pasta, utilize 1/2 cup of pesto sauce per pound of pasta. Tastes great on fish, eggs, even toast. Enjoy!
