Perfect Basil Pesto
  1. Place the pine nuts, basil, garlic, Perfect Italiano™ Parmesan and olive oil in a small food processor and whizz until finely chopped
Tips & Hints:
  • Pesto recipe takes around 10 minutes and makes about one cup
  • Pesto will keep for 2-3 days in a sterilised jar in the fridge. Be sure to add an extra 1-2cm of olive oil to cover the surface which help prevent pesto from oxidising and going brown
