Presto Pesto

Patton LOOOVES pesto pasta with sauteed beef. so every now and then I gotta make the guy happy.

Here's my recipe for 

Garlicky, Lemony, Yummy Pesto

Add 2 cups of fresh basil, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 3 garlic cloves, 3 tablespoons of pinenuts, 1 tablespoon of lemon zest, the juice of half a lemon, and a pinch of pepper into a blender or food processor and let it blend until you get the desired texture. 
Use as a fresh topping to pasta, chicken, fish, beef, whatever. 

Super easy and fast... the blender does all the work for you!

Pin It Now!


  1. I love it, a pesto recipe with no parmesan! I definitely will try this one out.

    Now, if only finding large quantities of fresh basil were as easy!

    1. It's gota rain sometime, right? And I do usually sprinkle parmesan on top of the pasta but for you inexplicable non-cheese eaters, this recpe is pretty yummy cheese free! Hugs to your girls from me!


Love to hear from you!
