Pesto Sauce

Pesto sauce is a very easy dressing to make, and will be whipped up in about 5 minutes.

The following ingredients are for 2 to 4 portions, so feel free to adjust your quantities if you are cooking for more or fewer people, or according to your taste.

You will need:
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons of basil (fresh basil is better, but dry basil works too)
  • 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons of olive oil (If you like your pesto a bit thinner, add another tablespoon of olive oil)

Preparation time: 5 minutes

In a bowl, mix the basil and the parmesan cheese.

Then add the olive oil and give it a good mix.

And voilà, you just made your own pesto sauce! Wasn't that easy!?

You can keep your pesto sauce in the fridge for a few days. But remember to give it a good stir when you take it out of the fridge, before using it.

*Note: You can use your pesto sauce with our Pesto, Cherry Tomato & Chicken Penne Salad recipe.

You can also use it with pasta, chicken, pizzas, or salad dressing.
