Easy Basil Pesto

There are a ton of pesto recipes out there, but I would like to share my personal combination of ingredients for a pesto. Pesto can be mixed into pasta or used as a dip for vegetables.



  • Handful of Basil
  • Handful of Italian flat leaf parsley
  • Handful of good quality Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves of Garlic, grated
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Combine basil, parsley, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor, turn it on and stream in olive oil until pesto comes together and has the consistency that can be poured. Store in the refrigerator in a air-tight container.
