This easy homemade pesto recipe is a staple for summer dishes, and it beats the pants off of the store bought version. Try it in Caprese Pizza, Sheet Pan Pesto Chicken, and Chicken Margherita!
Fresh basil, and lots of it
What You'll Need:
My preferred method for making pesto is in a food processor, but a blender will also work.
Combine the basil, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, and garlic in the food processor along with most (but not all) of the olive oil.
Blend everything up together, scraping the sides a few times.
If it’s very thick and paste-like, drizzle in a bit more olive oil.
