Rosie's Pesto

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Sauces

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Basil leaves -- fresh
  • 2 Garlic cloves -- peeled
  • (may be up to 5 cloves) *
  • 1/4 c Pine nuts
  • 1/4 c Parmesan cheese -- fresh
  • Grate
  • 1/4 c Lemon juice -- fresh
  • Squeezed


Put the basil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese in a blender or food
processor. Turn the machine on and drizzle in the lemon juice. Continue to
puree until a smooth paste isformed.

* The amount of garlic you use is a matter of personal taste. Also, some
garlic is more pungent. So start perhaps with 2 medium cloves, then taste,
and add more if, as I do, you like a strong, garlicky flavor.
