Easy Pesto Sauce
  • 25gr of fresh basil, approximately 2 full cups
  • 2 medium garlic cloves
  • 1/4cup of olive oil
  • A handful of pine nuts, almonds or nuts
  • 1/4cup Parmesan cheese
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Clean carefully the basil leaves. Put the basil in a blender or food processor at medium/low speed with the garlic cloves; add pine nuts (almonds/nuts) and a pinch of salt. Start grinding until it becomes a paste.
  2. Next incorporate the olive oil little by little until a uniform mix is obtained. The ideal consistency is not very liquid nor a solid green and undetermined mass.
  3. Add the parmesan cheese and stir. Taste the salt, and adjust to your preference. Likewise, if you think that it should be more liquid a little more oil may be added. Store the mix in a glass jar. Close tight and refrigerate.
