Directions

Mealthy Tip

Substitute pine nuts with any other nut you like. Cashews and walnuts are perfect (and happily they are less expensive than pine nuts!) You can also swap another herb such as parsley or cilantro for the fresh basil. Or add 1/2 cup spinach or kale to bulk up the volume. You can eliminate the Parmesan cheese from the pesto if you want to make it vegan.

I made this with tortellini instead of pasta and adddd some chicken, big winner! I didn't use olives but used diced red pepper instead and loved it. Might try with the olives next time though!

This homemade pesto is hands down one of the best I've ever made. Maybe it was the garlic or the Parmesan, I'm not sure, but either way, this pasta was incredible. Grilling the veggies is a must! It gives it that charred, smoky flavor. Wonderful dish and perfect for entertaining guests!
