Walnut Pesto Sauce

Now that I’ve made pesto sauce, I’m asking myself, “Why have I not made this before?” Grocery shopping this week, there was a tub of basil available (not a normal thing to see here) so I thought I’d give it a shot. I will never buy pesto sauce again. It’s so simple to make as long as you have the right ingredients. Next I’ll try Parsley Pesto Sauce since parsley is always available here.

Walnut Pesto Sauce
1/2 walnuts
3 cloves of garlic, smashed
2 cups fresh basil
1 cup flat leave parsley
1/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Put everything except the oil and the cheese in a food processor or blender and whirl away until chopped up well. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Add cheese a pulse quickly to just mix it in.
Yields enough for about 1 1/2 to 2 lbs of pasta.
