Garden Fresh Pesto recipe

Basil can be grown throughout summer and fall for a delicious pesto. Learn how to grow basil.

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Plunge basil leaves for 10 seconds in hot water — this will preserve its bright green color. Drain, then blend all ingredients together in a food processor until pesto is bright green. Taste as you go and adjust ingredients accordingly. Serve over pasta, pizza, or garlic bread. We especially love fresh pesto with burrata. Yum!
