Pesto is one of my favorite condiments; it can be put on so many different foods to enhance the flavor. I now have made this pesto twice and have managed to incorporate it into numerous meals, including scrambled eggs, avocado mac and cheese, along with several lunches (a few creations pictured below).
Pesto is easy to make in a food processor, and fun to experiment with different ratios and mixtures of ingredients.
- 2 cups of arugula
- ½ a cup of basil (or more if you have more)
- ¼ cup walnuts
- ¼ cup pinenuts
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves pressed
- ½ cup parmesan cheese
