Real pesto could only be made with mortar and pestle, I was told by a real Italian. Aha.
Ingredients (for four servings)
Large bunch of Basil
4 gloves of garlic, peeled
1/4 cup of roasted pine nuts (you can also use walnuts or pecans)
5 tablespoons of Olive Oil
3/4 cup of parmesan
So, here is what I did:
Then added the four gloves of garlic and the nuts.
We had it with pasta.
YUMMI - or so I thought.
I believe she was referring to the garlic.
I had used very large and very fresh gloves.
I told her, the mosquitos will stay away from her if she ate it.
BTW: This recipe is from The Splendid Table. Thanks!!
