The Unnatural Cook

a chronicle of weekly meal plans from someone who can't just throw a meal together


(adapted from Epicurious Classic Pesto • Bon Apétit, August 2004)

4 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup walnuts or pine nuts
2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Combine first 4 ingredients in cuisinart until paste forms. Scrape down sides, blend in cheese and salt. Taste and add extra cheese and nuts because it’s yummy.
