Pesto

 

Easy Pesto Recipe.  You can make this ahead and freeze it in small containers to use for later recipe ideas such as Chicken Pasta, Veggies or spread on crackers.
1 cup pistachios, unsalted and shelled
1-1 1/2 cup basil leaves (I did about half basil and half spinach)
2 garlic cloves
1/2-1 cup olive oil
juice of 1 lemon

and S/P to taste

METHOD

1 Pulse your nuts a few times before adding in your basil and spinach. Combine the basil and spinach leaves in with the nuts, pulse a few times in a food processor.  Add the garlic and pulse a few times more.

2 Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add  in your lemon juice, a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
