Though traditionally made with pine nuts, this walnut version is slightly cheaper to make but its equally delicious! It takes minutes to prepare and will beat any shop bought pesto anytime.
I suggest you make a bigger batch, it will come in very handy when you want a snack or a quick pasta after a long day at work.
1 large bunch of basil, picked
1/2 cup of walnut
2 garlic cloves
_1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
~ 1/3 cup of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
4 tbs of walnut, crushed
