Pesto: Condiment For Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dip

Pesto is typical sauce from Italy, specifically from Liguria region, Genoa that usually called Pesto Genovese. It goes well for pasta, pizza, or even as a dip. Classic pesto is made using basil leaves but sometimes I like to add spinach or kale to make it greener. If you can't find pine nuts, alternatively you can use almond or sunflower seeds

  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts or almond
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • a tbsp of lemon juice
  • salt to taste
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pour the pesto in a jar, cover with few table spoons of olive oil the cover with the lid. It will stay in fridge for a week
