#1 Basil Pesto

Thing #1: Basil Pesto

I have returned home from my wanderings and have become reacquainted with my precious garden! I was very impressed by my crazy basil plant’s growth spurt and decided to fight my jet lag by harnessing it’s pungent power – pesto time!

I loosely based this one on Jamie’s recipe, but improvised due to lack of pine nuts and included some almonds as well. So yummy!

Extra parmesan didn’t hurt either. My kitchen stinks of basil. Welcome Home Me!
