Classic Pesto Sauce

We continue the Italian month. Let's talk about perhaps the most famous sauce – Pesto. Exist an incredible variety of it. In fact – it's shredded herbs with olive oil, nuts and other additives. I will tell the most classic version:


  • Garlic
    3-4 clove
  • Basil
    80 g
  • Pine nuts
    40 g
  • Olive oil
    100 ml
  • Parmesan cheese
    70 g
  • Salt
    - pinch


  • 1. The sauce is made in a stone mortar, but the blender can perfectly replace it. Pour olive oil, basil, garlic, pine nuts and grated parmesan in the bowl. All ingredients must be well ground into a homogeneous, dense mass.
  • 2. Сhoose consistency for yourself and adjust the ingredients. So do not add everything at once. Use pesto with pasta or as a marinade for meat and fish, for sandwiches. The taste should be piquant, with spicy notes of garlic and basil. Bon Appetite!
