Basil, Jalapeño, Pistachio Pesto Sauce…

Finished mowing the lawn when I walked past the basil and jalapeño plants and noticed that they were a bit out of control.

Out came my garden scissors and after a few snips I had a bunch of jalapeños and plenty of basil.

Had a container with some peeled pistachios and decided, why not make a basil, jalapeño, pistachio pesto?

Into the blender went the basil, the jalapeños, the pistachios, some salt and pepper, parmesan cheese and olive oil ( I also added a drizzle of sesame oil).

And just like that after a few pulses we have a lovely aromatic and spicy pesto.

My daughter walked into the kitchen and stated that the smell of fresh herbs was divine, could I please make some pasta with the pesto sauce, so as I good mama, her wish is my command and here we have, some bow ties with homemade jalapeño pesto sauce.
