Fresh Basil Pesto // Pasta

Fresh Basil Pesto


  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (or 1/4 tsp garlic powder)

Fresh Basil Pesto

Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender. Pulse until ingredients are blended but still have a rough texture. Scrape sides of processor in between blending to make sure that everything is mixed well.

Fresh Basil Pesto

Serve on fresh bread or over pasta (I love topping cheese raviolis with basil pesto!). Or use this pesto for making my Tomato and Mozzarella Grilled Cheese Sandwich or Bruschetta with Fresh Mozzarella!
