Pesto Sauce

This sauce is versatile

  • 1 cup organic fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup organic fresh basil (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp organic garlic cloves 4-5 cloves (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup organic pine nuts (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup organic raw walnuts (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese freshly (shredded)
  • 1/4 cup asiago cheese freshly (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp juice of a fresh lemon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
Add all the above-mentioned ingredients into the food processor or blender except the olive oil,  salt, and pepper on the pulse setting pulse a few times until mixed well.  Continue to pulse and slowly drizzle the olive oil into the processor or blender once you have a nice spreadable consistency stop the processor add the salt and pepper to taste. 

Store in a mason jar and freeze, the pesto sauce freezes well and can last well over 6 months,  I normally place plastic wrap over the top of the pesto sauce before I seal it to freeze.  When I am ready to use I Just take the jar out of the freezer and set it on the counter until it soften some and I am able to spoon out what I need to use.  You can also fill an ice tray with the pesto sauce and freeze until ready to use. 

*I add this sauce to pasta, rice, and roasted potatoes just to name a few.

I live in New York I am Married to Clifford aka Jack and have one daughter name Kaneen aka Nene and a beautiful Yorkie name Buttercup aka Butter, Stinkbutt and Grandma. I was raised and born in Brooklyn New York. I have a love for cooking and it is my passion as I have discovered and I would like to share it with you. I like just relaxing at home with my Buttercup while thinking of what dish I can try an tackle or in my backyard gardening. I love watching cooking shows Giada, Barefoot Contessa, The Neely's , The Pioneer Women, Rachel Ray, Paula Deen and Bobby Flay are my favorites. I love to talk to people face to face or on social media, twitter i just started and it is cool because you must say what you have to say short, sweet and fast you only get a few wpm. ( words per minute). I love house music also yes I do especially when I am driving in my car... This is a new journey that I am on and I known sometimes It may seem like a roller coaster from time to time but I am willing to try and explore new things and new recipes as well. Cooking is truly my passion I have known for a very, very long time and because I am a chatter box I guess blogging about my food and talking in general should be easy, well maybe.... I look forward to sharing the foods that I love to make and also some new ones along the way...
