This looks so good and so easy! Last year I had more basil in my garden than I knew what to do with. As soon as I get my basil growing again this year, I’m trying your recipe!

Oh it is! I usually plant a tiny bit of basil in a container, but as soon as spring shows itself; I’ll be planting a whole lot of it!

Looks yummy! and healthy at the same time! I would love it for sure and its preparation time is so quick.
I can’t believe how easy this is to make. I imagine that it is packed full of great flavors too.
I have to admit that y have never made pesto before. I had no idea it was so easy to make! I’m sure it would be delicious with some pasta!
