One Minute Pesto

(2 Votes)
One Minute Pesto

Pesto sauce sounds fancy, doesn't it? But it's as easy as can be 'cause just a few ingredients, like fresh basil, Parmesan cheese, garlic and pine nuts or walnuts, make this a pasta-perfect alternative to tomato sauce!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups lightly packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth.
     
  2. Store in refrigerator, covered, until ready to use as desired.
     

Makes about 1-1/2 cups pesto sauce.

Note

One Minute Pesto is super on pasta (it makes enough to toss with about 1 pound), cooked chicken, and even on salads.

I have a lot of basil. Can pesto sauce be frozen ?

Absolutely! You can freeze your pesto sauce in ice cube trays, small jars, or containers for 6-9 months!
