Simple Pesto   Back to Recipes

Our Simple Pesto recipe is a versatile summer staple for pasta, crostini or flatbread pizza. Serves 6.

  • 3 cups fresh basil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Juice of 1 lemon (freshly squeezed is best!)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Put all ingredients but olive oil in food processor and pulse until combined but not totally liquefied (some texture is good). Slowly add in olive oil through spout at top while pulsing until fully incorporated. Serve on a sliced fresh baguette or over a delicious bowl of pasta.
