COOK TIME

Fresh basil is highlighted in pesto sauce, and there's no fresher sauce than this no-cook homemade pesto sauce that works well with fish, chicken and, especially, pasta!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 2 cups lightly packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot, cook linguine according to package directions; drain and return to pot.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, make pesto sauce by combining remaining ingredients; blend until smooth.
     
  3. Add pesto sauce to linguine, toss until well combined, and serve.
     
Garnishing Tip

Serve this topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a few toasted pine nuts. Add our delicious Caesar Salad, and your meal is complete!

A CUP of oil? That alone makes me cringe!

Could it work using dry basil? How much would be equal to 2 cups fresh? Anybody know?

When you're making pesto sauce, you definitely need to use fresh basil and not dry. :-)

I have not tried it as yet
