Here is my Pesto Recipe!

2 cups of chopped basil
1/2 cup of olive oil ( try to use extra virgin olive oil, but not needed)
1/3 cup pine nuts, walnuts, or peanuts (mine used peanuts, it's what I had)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup Parmesan (see note below)

Most Pesto recipes use Parmesan or a similar cheese, I didn't have it on hand, and you don't want to add it if you plan on freezing the pesto. If you freeze this pesto, it works great to portion it into an ice-cube tray, then once they are all frozen, pop them out, and into a small tupper-ware container or plastic bag. Then when you want to use it, you can add Parmesan when you thaw them out, how do you do that without the mess? pop one of these cubes in a shot glass, and thaw in the fridge.

This makes 7 individual portions.

Here is mine:

The picture doesn't do it justice!

Here is my hubby's take on it:
"Extreamly flavorful, everything that bland is not."

4 star, 5 with Parmesan

Hope you like it!
