If you're looking to make a simple batch of pesto to have on hand for sandwiches or snacks, this is the perfect recipe for you!
- 1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- pinch of ground nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
Bake the pine nuts at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes or until browned. Blend everything together until well combined but still a little chunky.
I added this pesto to a salami and mozzarella sandwich and it was delicious. It's also great as a snack with a baguette.
