“Using less oil makes this recipe a little easier on the waist line, but doesn't skimp out on big taste and comes with a twist. I created this using several recipes I had seen online. Beware this is garlicky for those who don't like garlic. Cooking Time= Combining Ingredients.”
READY IN:

YIELD:
1 Cup Pesto
UNITS:

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Put all ingredients, but the pepper flakes in the food processor.
  2. Pulse and blend.
  3. Blend until everything has been mixed, the pesto should be thick (to the point of being spreadable) and not runny. Trust me you want it this way, it coats the noodles way better.
  4. Put the pesto into a bowl and mix in the pepper flakes.
  5. You are now ready to mix it into your pasta or put it on your pizza.
  6. Note: The pesto by itself is a bit salty, but don't worry once on your pasta or pizza it is just right.
