Gale Gand's Basil Pesto Recipe: This Chef's Easy Pesto Recipe Has a Secret Ingredient (Butter!) by Gale Gand
Got a double batch of pesto made with my daughter Ella’s help. Here's the recipe I used from my long-time friend, Hans Koch. Share with your neighbors!
- 4 cups packed basil leaves
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1 cup good olive oil
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts (I toast them in a saute pan)
- 1/2 cup toasted walnuts (same as pine nuts)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese
Here's how to make it:
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree until well combined, scraping the bowl down a couple times.
Portion into small containers and freeze until needed.
