Granny's Pine Nut Pesto

Granny's Pine Nut Pesto is so delish that I'll never buy a pre-made jar of pesto again! Whip some up and keep it in the fridge for all of your pesto needs!

Servings: 8 oz
  • 3/4 c packed snipped basil
  • 1/3 c parmesan cheese
  • 3 T pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/8 t pepper
  1. Toast pine nuts by heating in a dry skillet over medium low heat until fragrant. Watch carefully because they will burn shortly after becoming fragrant.

  2. In a blender or food processor, combine basil, cheese, 3 T pine nuts, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover, and blend with several on/off turns until a paste forms. With the blade running, gradually blend in olive oil.
