Homemade Pesto – once you have tasted this you really wont be happy with anything else. Home made Pesto tastes so differnt from even the best you can buy – utterly delicious. . . and very easy to make.

Basil, Olive Oil, Garlic, Pin Nuts and Parmesan that’s what you need . .  so lets get started!

1 Clove Garlic – chopped (use 1/2 if you dont like lots of garlic)
2 fat bunches of Basil ( a good 2 – 3 handfuls)
30g (2oz) Lightly Toasted Pine Nuts ( they taste yummy so you might want to add a few extra!)
30g (2oz) Freshly Grated Parmesan
100ml (4floz) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Lemon Juice
Seasalt & Black Pepper

In a food processor place the basil and garlic and pulse until finely chopped
Add the pine nuts and mix again
Add the parmesan and mix again
Empty into a bowl and add your olive oil a little at a time until it is thick and ‘oozy’ (my children suggested this word and I love it, describes it perfectly!)
Season with salt and pepper and squeeze of lemon juice

Remember if you dont have a food processor you can use pestle and mortar.

And there we are your very own homemade pesto, now you can use it for your Pasta Mozzarrella, Sensational Bacon and Mozarella Pannini  – a few more ideas for Italian coking coming soon. Enjoy!
