I love pesto, but expensive! So I made my own. I grow my own basil,so that made it extra fresh. Make up a batch of this and pour it over your favourite pasta and enjoy!

(this makes 1-2 servings, depending on how much pesto you like on your dinner)



  • 1-1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a food processor (or blender), blend together basil leaves, nuts, garlic, and cheese. Pour in oil slowly while still mixing. Stir in salt and pepper (I put mine in before blending)
