Classic Pesto
5 mins (prep 5)
9 ingredients
4 servings
We're lucky enough to grow our own basil - although it seems we just can't grow enough of it. Summer is now known as "pesto season" to us and our family and friends just can't get enough of the green stuff. We make as many batches as possible as freeze them -- and somehow, the pesto never makes it to the winter. Note: This recipe is for garlic lovers as you can definitely taste the garlic! Enjoy!
