Easy Pesto Recipe. You can make this ahead and freeze it in small containers to use for later recipe ideas such as Chicken Pasta, Veggies or spread on crackers. 1 cup pistachios, unsalted and shelled 1-1 1/2 cup basil leaves (I did about half basil and half spinach) 2 garlic cloves 1/2-1 cup olive oil juice of 1 lemon
and S/P to taste
1 Pulse your nuts a few times before adding in your basil and spinach. Combine the basil and spinach leaves in with the nuts, pulse a few times in a food processor. Add the garlic and pulse a few times more.
2 Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add in your lemon juice, a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
