Oh sweet basil, it’s pesto time again! Some say pesto has been around since the 1860’s, others say some version of it has been filling up Italians since the 16th century, but one thing is for sure, it’s been around long before the invention of food processors or blenders. This “old fashioned” recipe uses only a knife and a cutting board. I find this equally delicious when I substitute walnuts for the more expensive pine nuts. This pesto can be eaten on it’s own or with pasta, on bread, or even as a topping for a summer salad and it takes less than 10 minutes to make. Get chopping and enjoy pesto the way it was made hundreds of years ago!
