Today I want to show you how easy it is to make Pesto classico :) You absolutely don’t need a lot, only 6 ingredients and a good working pureé stick!
In this is what you need:
- 100 g of Parmesan
- 100 g of pine nuts
- 10 table spoons of Olive oil ( you might need more, you might need less)
- 100 g of basil
- 3 cloves of garlic (you can also use less if you prefer it less garlicy :)
1) First roast the pine nuts. Be pacient :) They will only need around 2 minutes and make sure to roast them on a light heat. They burn quickly and the the darker they get, the stronger the taste will be.
2) You need a large cup where to pureé the pesto won’t be a problem. First you need olive oil. Take 7 heaped tablespoons of olive oil and add some basil, a bit of parmesan, garlic and some pine nuts into it. Now all you have to do is pureé everything together. If it’s a bit hard to stir than keep adding a bit of olive oil into it. It will eventually work, you’ll see :)
Now that a small paste is noticable you can add the rest and keep stiring, stiring aaaand stiring :)
And Done!! :)
I hope you enjoyed it! :) It always takes a bit practice, but you will see it it’s always worth spending some time and money to make something your own! Feel free to comment, like or share! I am always happy for your feedback and inspiration!
Lots of love <3 xoxo
