It'll take about five minutes to make. It also makes enough pesto for two 16 oz packages of pasta, so it's cheap too!
Step 1: Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup parmesan (my container had a weight of 2.5 oz)
- 1 bunch basil
- 1/2 cup olive oil (start with 1/4 cup and work your way up)
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1-2 tsp lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Step 2: Prep.
Chopping the garlic is not entirely necessary, but I like to give it a head start so there's no large pieces left.
Step 3: Process!
I normally add the full 1/2 cup, because I like my pesto to be more runny. :)
Step 4: Add salt, pepper, lemon
And now you're done. Easy, right?
