Homemade Pesto! Super easy…

That’s right! Homemade. Pesto. Easy. Seriously! First, I bought a basil plant in the store where I buy my produce. It was on sale for $2.99. It was full with leaves when I purchased it, but I let it grow for about another week. It sucked down tons of water everyday! Isn’t it pretty? It smelled awesome and was such a pretty green.

Such simple ingredients! That is it! Pine nuts are expensive, so see if you can buy them when they go on sale. It will make your cost per portion go way down!

Put them all in the blender and wham-o! Deliciousness!

Here is the final product with the poor naked basil plant plucked clean. I’m trying to keep it alive and make it grow leaves back. Any tips?

Ah, and now the pesto on whole wheat pasta! Mangia!
