In this recipe, I'll teach you how to make a quick and easy Pesto Sauce that could be used for Pasta (hot or cold), salad dressing, marinade or brushed on garlic toast. Easily refrigerated or put in the freezer, the sauce can be used over and over again.
What you will need:
5 big bunches of basil
1/2 cup of pine nuts
1/2 cup of grated cheese (pecorino or locatelli)
1 cup of oil
Food Processor or Blender
Ok, let's get cooking:
This is so easy! Just combine all ingredients into your blender or mixer, run on high until it's blended very well. Check the consistency. If it's very watery or runny, add in some more cheese or oil, depending on the flavor. Add in a pinch of salt and pepper and you are done!
Tip - for extra flavor, add in sun dried tomatoes (about 4 is all you need).
