You can make pestos in a snap
(NC) - If you're looking for versatile sauces that add great flavour to everyday cooking, look no further than these sensational pestos from Bertolli (www.homebasics.ca). The goodness of Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the season's freshest ingredients can make any weekday meal sensational. Not sure how to introduce pestos into your favourite family meals?
To introduce you to the simple art of pesto making, try this deliciously simple recipe for Classic Basil Pesto:
In a small skillet set over medium-low heat, toss the pine nuts with about 1 tbsp of olive oil - stirring constantly just until they begin to turn golden - about 5 minutes. Be very careful not to let the pine nuts burn.
Transfer the toasted pine nuts to the container of a food processor or blender and add the remaining olive oil, basil leaves, garlic, and salt. Blend until almost (but not entirely) smooth, scraping down the sides of the container once or twice so that it blends evenly.
Add the Parmesan cheese and process just to mix.
Serving Size: Makes about 1 cup enough for 4 Pasta Servings
