The herb garden is doing well at this time of year.  Basil is in full bloom so decided to make a batch of Pesto sauce ready for tonight’s simple dinner (also made some bruschetta using some of the Basil).image image
3 cups of basil leaves
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 garlic cloves
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 chilli optional

Blend all the ingredients to desired texture. Store in fridge and use as required. Great with vegetable noodles or pasta.
