Basil Walnut Pesto

Classic pesto with walnuts instead of pine nuts


  • 1 bag CSA basil, woody stems removed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 handful walnuts
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Blend all ingredients until you obtain a textured paste (slightly granular). Serve on top of pasta, sauteed summer squash, acorn or spaghetti squash, or use as a spread for sandwiches.
