Kitchen Adventure #3

It has been a scorcher this year. Most of our garden never had a change. One seed that grew plentifully: basil. What to do with 3 pots of basil? Pesto. I have never made pesto before, so this was a fun and simple recipe for me:

2 1/3 cups of fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup walnuts
3 gloves of garlic
3/4 cup parmesan

Combine the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until mixed. Salt and pepper to taste. Put on top of pasta, potatoes, crackers...ANYTHING!

It was delicious! I was able to use Sartori cheese, which I mentioned in a blog post awhile ago. It was affordable, tasty, and well designed.
