Easy Basil Pesto Recipe

In our garden this year, we ended up with a lot of Basil!  I didn’t want it to go to waste and couldn’t keep up with it with Italian dishes etc.  So I made our own Basil Pesto!  It was super easy to make!

I got out my food processor, and added:

2 cups of Basil

1/3 cup of Parmesan Romano Grated cheese

1/3 cup of Olive Oil

1/3 cup of Walnuts ( most recipes call for Pine nuts but all we had were walnuts and it turned out fine!)

1/2 teaspoon of Lemon Juice


Puree until it gets to the right consistency.

Store in a sealed dish in the refrigerator.
