DIRECTIONS

  • Place Parmesan cheese and garlic cloves in the Mini Master Prep Bow.
  • Secure the top and process in one long, 30 second pulse until cheese is grated. (Skip this step if using store bought grated cheese.).
  • Add remaining ingredients, then fresh basil leaves last and secure top.
  • Use 8-10 short pulses until pesto is a coarse, paste-like consistency.
  • Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over your favorite pasta, or use as a fresh pizza or bruschetta topping. Also great on chicken or salmon.
  • BOB'S TIPS: If the strong lflavors of pine nuts arenn't for you, try substituting walnuts, cashews or blanched almonds. I like the blanched almonds best as their outer hull has been removed and won't turn your pesto brown.
