This is a quick and easy recipe for fresh basil pesto with pine nuts and lots of garlic flavor. It’s been a while since I’ve made basil pesto, so I looked up a few recipes. Most are pretty much the same. The recipe doesn’t depend on exact ingredient amounts, so much as the quality of the ingredients you use in the recipe. I followed Simply Recipe’s recipe to make this one. You can also substitute walnuts for the pine nuts. It was delicious, and made an excellent vegetable pasta perfect for summer. Thanks to OhNuts! for sending me these fabulous pine nuts.
