Pesto

Created By: Dale Simmer
Difficutly: very easy
Time: 20 Min
Portion: 1 serving
Ingredients:

3 cloves garlic

1/2 c pecans

2 c fresh basil leaves (firmly packed)

2T lemon juice

2T olive oil (or more if dry)

Dash cayenne pepper and salt

1/2 c freshly grated parmesan cheese

Directions:
In food processor, chop garlic and nuts. Add basil and oil chop well add rest of ingreedients and blend. Should be chopped enough to spread on a cracker or chip. Leaves should be chopped very well. Serve immediately or freeze in plastic wrap. Keep covered – pesto browns if left open to air but is still good to eat – it just looks bad.
