From My Garden to My Table……

Got back from a business trip to find my Basil flourishing and way out of control, and same goes for my mint, and both of them were screaming “PESTO, PESTO”!

So Basil and Mint Pesto it is!

Plucked enough basil to fill about 4 1/2 cups and enough mint to fill 1 1/2 cups and chopped it up coarsely.

Roasted 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts, chopped them up and added them together with the basil and mint into a food processor.

Then I added 6 tablespoons of parmesan cheese and 1 1/2 tablespoons of chopped garlic and a nice sprinkle of red pepper flakes.

Gave them a nice whiz in my food processor until it became a nice paste.

Then slowly drizzled in 1 cup of olive oil and finally seasoned it with salt and pepper.

All I can say is that it looks yummylicious! Can’t wait to make some homemade pasta and toss it in this aromatic, full of flavor, delicious concoction that made it from my garden to my table…… ❤
