4 bunches of fresh basil (remove leaves from stem)
handful of shredded pecorino cheese
1-2 cups of walnuts (roughly chopped-this is what makes it rustic)
2 pinches of sea salt
enough extra virgin olive oil to make the mix slightly damp
Roughly chop all the basil leaves and walnuts. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. If you don’t want the pesto to be so ‘rustic’ then toss everything in a food processor and make it ‘modern’. Personally, I like it rustic.
I put this pesto on everything. Sometimes I just add some chicken or shrimp and eat it that way! Y-u-m-m-y! This time I spread it over some fresh pasta, added some diced roma tomatoes, and fresh shredded mozzarella! Then I threw on some shrimp sauteed in garlic for some healthy protein!
Are you a fan of pesto? What’s your favorite pasta sauce?
