Fresh Italian Pesto Recipe For Pasta (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightThe flavors of fresh pesto may seem complex, but making pesto couldn’t be much easier.

Made with toasted pine nuts, fresh basil leaves, garlic, a good hard grating cheese, sea salt, and extra virgin olive oil using either a food processor or blender, fresh Italian pesto will last in your refrigerator for about a week but will keep much longer in your freezer.

Feel free to substitute walnuts for a more affordable alternative to pine nuts.

Want to really spoil yourself? Use your homemade pesto with fresh pasta for some out of this world flavor or make these Easy and Quick Pesto Palmier Appetizers.

You learn how to easily make fresh homemade Italian pesto below in this recipe video by Jason Hill of Chef Tips. Enjoy!

Another delicious pesto recipe you might want to try is this Homemade Garlic Scape Pesto Recipe.
