Basil Pesto

This is The Pioneer Woman’s basil pesto recipe (you can find it here) and it tastes so good I could lick it right off the spoon. This pesto can be served over pasta, on salmon, as a spread over bread, you name it! Also, any recipe is a bonus for me when it freezes well. I like to double the recipe so I can freeze some for a later date. *To use after freezing thaw in the fridge for a couple of hours prior to use.

Prep: 5 minutes


  • 3/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil


Add all ingredients (except olive oil) to a food processor. While food processor is running drizzle in olive oil. Add additional olive oil if needed.
