Mealthy Tip

Fresh basil is one of summertime's true herbal treats. Basil plants can be found in many groceries so you can keep it growing at home rather than having to continue to buy less-fresh product whenever the pesto mood strikes. Pesto freezes very well. Buy plenty of fresh basil at peak harvest and make large batches of pesto to freeze, keeping yourself in stock of the summer deliciousness all through the year.

If you don't have an immersion blender, place the pesto ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

This reminds me of what my mom used to make as a quick and easy weeknight dinner when I was a kid. Nostalgia AND yum. A perfect combo.

I always used store bought pesto, but after making this recipe, I will never go back! There's something delicious and authentic about fresh made basil pesto. I'm a new fan. I made this recipe using fresh fettuccine noodles. New favorite!
