What’s green, gooey and tastes awesome?
That’s right, it’s pesto.
For those who don’t know, pesto is a really simple sauce made with basic ingredients. Here are the ingredients you will need to make fresh homemade pesto.
– Walnuts (or pine nuts)
– Lemon juice
– Lots of olive oil
Blend everything together and tada, pesto’s ready 🙂
I used to be one of those people who used to opt for the safe option of ordering pasta in arrabbiata sauce (the tomato based sauce) but once I developed a liking for pesto, there was no turning back.
While pasta and pesto make a really good pair, you don’t have to restrict yourself (Though, that’s pretty close to being in heaven)
This healthy sauce can be used as a base for a lot of other things too.
You can even add a big dollop of pesto in your salad. In fact I had that for lunch today and it turned out to be rather yummy.
Are you fond of pesto too? Do you have any signature pesto dish?
