Great idea- freezing pesto as ice cubes!
Anyone looking for find a recipe to use up your fresh basil leaves?
I have an incredible recipe for pesto that can be refrigerated or frozen. You can use pesto as a dip or it can be added to spaghetti sauces or pasta dishes. It is simple and quick!
4 cups packed fresh basil
6 sprigs of parsley
1/2 cup olive oil
Pinch of coarse salt
1/4 cup of pine nuts, toasted
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesean cheese
1. Toast pine nuts at 350C for 5 minutes until lightly browned.
2. Place all the ingredients in the food processor except the parmesean cheese.
3. Transfer to a bowl, stir in cheese, adjust with salt and serve! (It is delicious with crackers, or fresh baguette)
You can refrigerate for up to a week or store in the freezer. If you choose to freeze the pesto, do not add the cheese…
