If you have craving for an Italian-inspired dish, pesto may be what you need. Its combination of flavors hailing from the Genoa region in Italy is great with pasta, or simply as a spread on a slice of delicious, toasted, whole grain bread. So, if you're looking to give your meals a fresh, European twist, follow this easy recipe to prepare pesto at home.

How to Easily Prepare Delicious Pesto at Home

The Ingredients

  • Basil
  • Garlic cloves
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Secorino cheese (if available)
  • Salt

The Tools

  • A blender
  • A cheese grater
  • A chopping knife
  • A chopping board
  • A bowl

The Steps to Follow

  1. The first step will be to take the basil and garlic cloves and mince them up. After that, put them in a big enough bowl.
  2. Next up, grate the Parmesan and Secorino cheeses on top of the basil and garlic.
  3. Add the salt and the olive oil in. You can use the blender at this point to mix all of the ingredients evenly, or you can do it with a spoon.
  4. That's it! After that, you can serve your pesto in small bowls (or even make a smaller bread bowl for it).  If you want, you can even put some slices of bread in the oven and bake them until they're nice and toasty, so you can spread pesto on them.
