    Basil Pesto Recipe : Food Network Kitchen. Just made some to marinate and cook my chicken for dinner tonight. It's delish & so easy to make. PS if you don't have a food processor like me, use the pulse option on your blender and add the olive oil little by little until you get the taste and thickness you desire... just be ready to take apart your blender and use a rubber spatula ;-) #pesto #dinner #easy #yummy #basil

    This is essential how I make pesto sauce for noodles - we skip the pine nuts and the cheese. It is so good. I make mine in my Vita-Mix blender.
