is there anything better than fresh pesto? i think not. it's such a complex and fresh flavor, you would think it's difficult to make. my friends, it doesn't get any simpler than this. it's literally basil, garlic, walnuts (sometimes you'll see a pine nut variation), parmesan cheese, lemon juice and olive oil. you can toss it with pasta, throw it on top of a grilled chicken breast. spread it on a sandwich or put in a soup. and you can freeze it to use later.
love, love, love.

3 c fresh basil, (2 oz)
3 tbl walnuts
3 tbl grated parmesan
2 garlic cloves
1 tbl lemon juice
salt & pepper
1/4 c olive oil

1. combine first seven ingredients in food processor streaming olive oil in slowly.
2. that's seriously it... seriously.
