One of our favorite summer meals is cool pesto pasta. When we have it, I use homemade pesto. It is so easy to make and tastes wonderful, here is the recipe for you to try.
5 or so Cloves of Garlic
15 Large Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup of Pine Nuts (a more frugal option will be Walnuts, Pecans, or Cashews and it works just fine)
Salt and Pepper to taste
7 or so Tablespoons of Olive Oil
- In a Blender, blend together the above ingredients, adding oil last slowly.
We mix with pasta, cut up cherry tomatoes and chicken for a cool summer salad. Super Yummy!!!
