Today I made basil pesto from a recipe from one of my favorite food blogs. Some of the yummiest recipes I have ever encountered, and the basil pesto was no exception.
Some notes about this recipe:
- Be warned, 3 cups of packed fresh basil is no joke! I mean, I cleared off several plants to get this much.
- I used Romano instead of Parmesan (because that's what we had) and it was still super tasty.
- I only had to buy one ingredient -- pine nuts. Ever bought pine nuts? Those babies are not cheap! But, they are sooo unbelievably delicious. Thankfully you only need a 1/2 cup in this recipe.
