It takes just 6 ingredients and 10 minutes to make the best-tasting homemade basil pesto!
There's something so comforting about a bowl of pasta, and nothing elevates a simple bowl of pasta quite like homemade pesto.
It's rich flavor - full of cheese and garlic with a hint of nuttiness - makes pesto my all-time favorite pasta topping. But pesto is great with so much more than just pasta! I love it spread on crackers, with a cheese board, and especially in hollandaise sauce on my eggs Benedict!
The best thing about pesto is how quick and easy it is to make! It only takes 10 minutes to toss 6 simple ingredients into the food processor, and then you're ready to serve. Watch the video above to see just how easily this recipe comes together. It's perfect for a speedy weeknight meal, but also impressive enough to serve at a casual dinner party with friends.Print
