Garlic Cloves Pesto

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetables, Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 4 good-sized garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup pine nuts (if pine nuts are not available, substitute with walnuts)
  • 1 cup high quality olive oil
  • 1 cup freshly grated imported Parmesan Reggiano
  • ΒΌ cup freshly grated imported Romano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a food processor, add basil, garlic and pine nuts and process until uniformly chopped.

With motor running add olive oil in a drizzle. Open the lid and scrape down the sides then turn motor back on to mix.

Pour into a bowl and hand mix in both cheeses and salt and pepper to taste.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

This pesto may also be frozen - we put it in small zipper seal food storage bags and flatten to remove all the air from the bag before sealing and freezing.
