Basil Pesto

100g basil leaves
2 cloves garlic
75g pine nuts
75g finely grated parmesan cheese
200ml olive oil

Process basil, garlic and nuts until finely chopped.
Add cheese and with motor running add oil through liquid spout.

Homegrown basil and homegrown garlic. So easy and so yummy with pasta!

This made a thick, dip-like pesto. To make it more saucey simple add more olive oil. This quantity made plenty for our dinner and lots more for the freezer.


  1. It looks like everything you've grown is flourishing Vicki! Especially that gorgeous Archie boy!

  2. This sounds so yummy and I bet it tastes even better because it came from your garden.:) xo
