Adam made some really good pesto for us the other night (an entire 4 course dinner, actually), and it was so delicious! I didn’t take a picture because it tasted that good and we ate it up pretty quickly. But I still wanted to share it.
I don’t have a real recipe with clear instructions, but if you are up for a little experimentation I have the ingredients and some rough guidance.
Note: For garlic lovers only!
Lots of fresh basil (we grow our own, so just a couple of handfuls out of the garden. Otherwise maybe a pack or two from the store)
5 or 6 garlic cloves
Some shredded parmesan cheese
Combine the above ingredients in a food processor until very finely chopped and mixed together. Add it to some angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti noodles and toss together. SO good! I might also note that it causes your mouth to smell intensely like garlic, so if you are going dancing afterwards (like we did), you may need to chew on a few cloves to freshen up your breath. Otherwise, enjoy!
Also on the menu for the evening:
Guacamole and chips
Homemade bread with vinegar/olive oil for dipping
Frozen Yogurt with fresh fruit and chocolate chips
