A quick and delicious homemade pesto that is great on its own or over pasta!
of garlic minced
a heaping 1/2 cup of chopped fresh parsely
a heaping 1/2 cup of course chopped fresh basil
of shredded fresh parmesan
of olive oil
of vegetable oil
of slivered almonds or walnuts
Make sure they are toasted
Add all of your ingredients to a food processor starting with your liquids first so they are at the bottom.
Pulse your ingredients until they begin to come together and form a pesto.
Do not over mix or your pesto will be too smooth; you want a little texture.
Taste for seasoning and add any salt or pepper as needed.
All of the ingredients blended together should yield about 1 cup of pesto. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
