Homemade Basil Walnut Pesto 自製青醬
Classic Italian pesto sauce that made of basil and walnut, very creamy, delicious and healthy. It takes only minutes to make and you can have it with pasta or salad. Buonissimo!
I love pesto, when I lived in Italy, pesto pasta is one of the dish I always cook or order in restaurant. I remember I taste the original pesto from Genova, it was absolutely amazing.
I love to make it with walnut, cause I don’t really like the pine nuts (Am I weird?) Walnut and basil make perfect combination, it is very healthy. It takes you only few minutes to make it, less than 5 I promise. You can use for pasta or salad, a must-have sauce in the fridge.
Roast the walnuts in oven at 160C for 10 minutes (sometimes I skin this step). Put the garlic and walnut in food processor, blend until combined. Then add in basil leaves, parmesan cheese and olive oil, blend for about 10 seconds, season with salt and pepper.
