When I think about pesto, I am reminded of my mom’s basil plants that overtook our garden in the summer months. Basil was a constant herb available in our house growing up, whether it was freshly chopped and sprinkled on tomatoes with feta, mixed up into pesto or dried so that it would make it through the winter.
Thinking back to my mom making homemade pesto, the entire operation definitely intimidated me. But thankfully, I recently realized that was because we had the smallest and oldest food processor inhabiting the back of our kitchen cupboards.
Luckily, my appliances have received an upgrade and now pesto is going to be a staple in my own home (still miss you making it for me, Mom).
I also revamped the ingredients because who really wants to spend $15 on a handful of pine nuts? (Okay, I would love to but I’ll save that for when I win the lottery). Low and behold, the inexpensive and Easy Peasy Pesto.
