Pesto is a delicious basil and olive oil based sauce. We usually put it on pasta but you can basically put it on anything you want.



Art work by me ( water color)



This is my cooking journal. If you want to become a really good cook starting a cooking journal is a great idea.





1 bunch of basil

1-2 cups olive oil

3 cloves garlic

1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts (we like pine best)

1 Tea salt

1/2 tea pepper

1/4-1/2 cup parm cheese (fresh is best!)

Blend every thing in a food processor or blender. You can kind of play around with adding in more of the things that you like and less of the things that you don’t like and make it your own. Serve on either pasta, fish, bread,over a salad ect…
