homemade pesto

Ever since I bought my Magic Bullet, I have been using it almost every day for fresh smoothies and pestos of any kind. My favorite is the classic but to keep the real taste of fresh basil, I don’t use pine nuts and garlic…

Fresh homemade pesto

You will need

2 bunch of fresh basil

1dl of extra virgin olive oil (quality is important!)

3 pinches of sea salt

50gr of grated Parmesan cheese

Put the leaves, olive oil, salt and cheese into a blender. Mix until you get a smooth consistence.

While cooking your pasta al dente, pour the pesto into a pan to heat it up. Once the pasta is cooked and drained, pour it into the pan and let it cook with the pesto for about 1-2 minutes and serve immediately.
