Notes

This is best in the summer when you have basil growing in your kitchen garden. Go out and pick your leaves while you have the water heating for the pasta. Remember to have quality ingrediants. This pesto is great on pasta, thin spaghetti pasta is our favorite or using as packing for fresh mozzarella bites. Have some warm crusty french bread ready to wipe the leftover pesto off of your plate.
