Classic Pesto

 Classic Pesto
Printable Recipe

  • 1 bunch basil leaves 
  • 1 handful parsley 
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts 
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 2/3 cup olive oil 

1. Put the first 5 ingredients in a food processor, or use a mortar & pestle. 

2. Blend together & add olive oil in a steady stream until you have the consistency you desire.


Lightly toss the pesto through freshly cooked warm pasta or 
seal pesto in a air tight container & store in the fridge. 

Pesto has always been one of my favorite pasta sauces, this is a great pesto that stores well in the fridge & can be used for pesto chicken, pasta, & pasta salads.

Pesto is a pretty straight forward recipe & there is not much that can be modified to keep the integrity of a classic pesto sauce. In this specific recipe you can remove the parsley & still have a fine pesto, but I like the extra touch.
