I discovered a purpose for my Red Rubin Basil...and those purplish beauties now have a new place in my heart.
Red Rubin Basil Pesto
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic
1/8 cup pine nuts
1/3 cup EVOO
Throw basil, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor until coarsely chopped. Add oil and process until smooth.
Now take a whiff of this tasty creation and slather onto anything that seems slightly logical. I put it on baked chicken..delish.
Since a bowl of pesto may not look especially impressive, check out this beauty instead...
Yum. Happy 4th of July from me and Martha Stewart (even if the directions for this recipe were kind of screwy...I forgive you, Martha. You seem like a pretty busy woman.)
