    Pesto Chango!

    It's not magic.

    We have an abundance of basil, sage and tarragon.
    These all make a great pesto sauce.

    Basil leaves picked and ready



    Recipe

    1 cup fresh leaves (choice of, basil, tarragon, or sage)
    1 cup fresh parsley leaves
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup toasted nuts (we have been using almonds)
    2 cloves fresh garlic
    3/4 cup olive oil



    We made 3x this recipe. Place half of the parsley and basil leaves in the food processor followed by the salt, pepper, cheese, garlic, toasted nuts and then the rest of the herbs.



    Turn on food processor and drizzle in the olive oil.

    PESTO CHANGO!!!



    You should be here to smell this when you take the lid off. Basilygarlickycheeseynuttyummy !

    Three bags for the freezer and a little for bruschetta tonight.



    We like using the basil pesto on pizza. Toss it with pasta or veggies. The sage pesto goes well with pork or chicken. Tarragon pesto is nice on fish.

    It's good you labeled them, so no one will think it's marijuana!

    True marijuana connoisseurs would label it "marijuana" instead of "basil," just so no one gets confused and puts it on their pizza!

    Y'all might be on to something here. Pot heads are supposed to get munchies, right? Put the marijuana on the pizza and they can get high without munchies.

    When I was in junior high a bag of oregano caused quite a stir. Just saying.

    YUM...LOVE pesto.

    I like to eat it with pasta...but also if you coat fresh veggies with it and roast them in the oven..it is delicious. And as a pizza sauce...good call! Next year I am going to grow an herb garden....and get a food processor.
