First Time Pesto!

I know it’s been a while but I won’t bore you with the details and reasons and excuses 😉

BUT!  I am so excited by my very first successful attempt at basil pesto I had to share.

All I did was blend chopped garlic,  cashew nuts and a bit of jalapeno.  Then I added basil leaves and salt and blended some more.  I poured in a few tablespoons of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and blended some more to get my desired consistency and voila!  Deliciousness you have to taste to believe 🙂

Normally basil pesto includes parmesan and pine nuts but both of those were just too expensive to buy XD

It’s great to smear some on toasted bread but I had to use it on my fresh homemade pasta.
Yummilicious!!!

A meal that reminded me to be thankful for the fresh things in life.

It has also inspired me to start growing my own basil!
