I love pesto and it works so well with loads of meats, fish and veg and of course with pasta.
You will need:-
Handful of pine nuts toasted.
Large bunch of basil leaves picked
1 glove of garlic
Salt and pepper
1 large handful of grated parmesan
Good olive oil
In a pestle and mortar bash up the garlic with a pinch of salt until you get a paste.
Roughly chop the basil and bash up with the garlic, add the toasted pine nuts and again give them a good bashing. Add the grated parmesan and stir in a good lug of olive oil, you want it loose enough to coat pasta. Squeeze in the lemon and season to taste. Once you have tried this recipe you will be adding it to everything. Enjoy.
