How To Make Italian Basil Pesto – Laura Vitale

Please Share This Page:



Italian basil pesto is popular worldwide. It is traditionally made by putting fresh basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and salt into a marble mortar, then crushing the ingredients with a circular motion of a wooden pestle. Olive oil is then added to bring all the crushed ingredients together. Basil pesto is a delicious sauce and a very versatile pantry item. It can be used as a pasta sauce, a spread on bread, a pizza sauce, a soup topping, and it can also be added in marinades, salad dressings, and dipping sauces. It is very simple to make basil pesto at home. With today’s technology, you will no longer need a mortar and a pestle to create this sauce. With this recipe, you can make a classic Italian basil pesto from scratch. All you need are good-quality ingredients and a blender or a food processor. So forget buying jarred pesto which can contain additives, start making your own at home – and you will score extra culinary points when entertaining also!

Ingredients:


• 2 cups of fresh basil leaves
• 3 tbsp toasted pine nuts
• 1 garlic clove, sliced
