Homemade Pesto

Pesto is our go to hero condiment, all throughout the year and I can not believe I use to buy this super easy, super tasty and all round awesome sauce when it is so easy to make. 

Every week without fail I have to make a batch of this glorious green sauce, those days not wanting to be in the kitchen and make a grand dinner after a long day at work and want something fresh, tasty and super easy to make, bomb, pop this bad boy at of the fridge, boil up some pasta combine the two great gods together and a sprinkle, well who am I kidding a lovely and very generous sprinkle of parmesan and the family dish just comes together in the most perfect way. 

This pesto works great in salads and sarnies too.

To start making this heavenly sauce, you got to toast up a cup full pine nuts until nice and brown, then toss into my blender.

I like to add 1 cup of olive oil.

Followed by  2 cup fulls of basil.

4 cloves of garlic

Juice of half a lemon

1 cup of grated parmesan, do not buy already grated parmesan the taste is completely different.

A pinch of salt and pepper, then give it all a whizz in your blender.

If you find that it is too thick a splash of water will loosen things up for you.

There is nothing more delicious than enjoying this, with family and friends and you know what the pesto's yet to come.
