I have always made pasta with tomato pasta sauce or white sauce . I always wanted to try Pesto but some way or the other i ended up making pasta in some other way.Finally i had all the ingredients needed and so without giving it a second thought I gave it a try...and I just fell in love with the fresh aroma that lingered in my house while making this.I also made a wonderful pesto pasta with garlic chicken which tasted so divine and my dear hubby became a huge fan of this pesto sauce and the pesto pasta...I now will be making it quite often and will be experimenting a  lot with this wonderful pesto..Its very simple to make do give it a try. Even though you don't have pine nuts you can still go ahead and make it using almonds or walnuts. ..


  •  2 cups Fresh Basil
  •  1/4 cup pine nuts
  •  4 tbsp olive oil
  •  2-3 garlic cloves
  •  1 cups  grated Parmesan Cheese (i made it with amul)
  • salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Slightly roast the pine nuts for 5 minutes.
  2. Grab all your ingredients and just grind it by slowly adding the oil till smooth and incorporated.
  3. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate and use as desired.


The cheese contains salt so add very little.
Store it in airtight container by adding little oil on top and then refrigerate.
