An italian kitchen is incomplete without a jar of pesto. A lip-smacking combination of basil, cheese and nuts, pesto serves as a tasteful dressing for many a preparation, from pastas and salads to even stuffed bread rolls. Although commonly available at stores these days, classic italian pesto made at home is certainly a notch above these.
- Lightly roast the pine nuts. Cool completely.
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend into a smooth paste.
- Use as required.
- Tips :
- If walnuts are used in the recipe, the first step can be omitted.
- Ready to use pesto is also available in bottles at gourmet stores.
