Easy Pesto!

One of this month's Devo Olive Oil flavors is French Walnut! And it is so tasty! As soon as a I tried it, I knew I wanted to make pesto.

Here is the pesto recipe:
1 cup walnuts 
2-3 cloves garlic, minced 
1 cup basil leaves 
1/4 tsp salt

*This makes about 1 cup. If you want thinner, creamier pesto, blend in some vegetable broth! You can also add sundried tomatoes (packed in olive oil) for really good flavor.

1. In a food processor, blend all ingredients but the olive oil.
2. With the blender still on, drizzle in the French Walnut olive oil until your pesto reaches the desired consistency.

I steamed zucchini and asparagus in vegetable broth and cooked Sun-dried tomato meatballs to go with our pesto!
