Yesterday in our produce box we received beautiful basil and tomatoes! Here is a recipe for you!!
Here is a Pesto Recipe pulled from AllRecipes.com. This Pesto recipe had the most stars and looks delicious!
3 cups packed fresh basil
4 cloves garlic
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup oil – extra virgin olive oil would be great!!
1/4 cup pine nuts (toast them for a toasty flavor)
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Combine and Enjoy!
Second option – This is the one I am going to do Tomato Basil Salsa
1/4 cup chopped basil
2 cups chopped peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Salt and Pepper to taste
Made this recipe this afternoon – I doubled it (the amount of basil we received in our share equals about 1 cup of finely chopped packed basil). It was delicious – we poured it over pasta!! Yum
