My first attempt at making pesto! I had plenty of basil growing in my herb garden so I picked up some pine nuts while at Sams Club today and gave it a whirl!It was super easy. First I washed the basil and measured 2 cups. After putting it in the blender with 3 garlic cloves, 1/3 cup pine nuts, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup of pecorino cheese, I whirled it around for about 30 seconds. It’s as easy as that! Add salt and pepper to taste.
