The Perfect Pesto

Look what God blessed me with today.Β 
Yup, it is basil, and a whole lot of it.
It seems like I have a lot of extra herbs in my garden.
Parsley
Mint
The one in particular I am thinking about is basil.
So in the summer, when your basil is abundant and fragrant, make some pesto.
You will be really glad you did.

Pesto

2 cups fresh basil leaves
4 garlic cloves
1 cup walnuts
1 cup olive oil
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt and pepper to taste.
Directions
In a food processor, chop basil, garlic and walnuts.
Β 
While the food processor is still running add oil until combined. Add cheese salt and pepper.
Pulse briefly until combined.Β 
Peace be with you,
Veronica
