Pesto Pasta

I wish I could tell you that the pesto in this recipe is homemade but it is not. If you could see my basil plant on my deck, you would understand. It’s really not doing that well. It never was for that matter. I will share a pesto recipe that I found last summer when my basil plant from Trader Joe’s was doing great! There are so many recipes out there, please feel free to find another that suits you! The pesto you see in the picture is from a mix I found in the Natural Food section a few months ago.




  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts (I used pine nuts)
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a food processor, blend together basil leaves, nuts, garlic, and cheese. Pour in oil slowly while still mixing. Stir in salt and pepper.

  1. Homemade pesto or not, this looks great! I need to get my husband to warm up to pesto because he didn’t care for it the last time.
