Take Back the Kitchen with Alma Schneider

P1090036.JPGMy garden did not exactly work out this year but I did get some nice herbs from my herb garden. Before it gets too cold, pick that basil or just buy it! This pesto is easy and delicious and oh so versatile. Enjoy!
2 cups packed basil leaves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cups walnuts
3 small garlic cloves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a food processor, puree the garlic first. Then add in the walnuts, cheese, basil and oil. Puree until blended and keep scraping down the sides with a spatula. Add salt and pepper to taste and voila!
