Oh my gosh...so super healthy but ONLY in moderation.....
Welcome to my blog and welcome back if you are a returning visitor! I'd LOVE if you would stay awhile and click on 'follow' to become a follower!
So tonight, I made a homemade Pesto Sauce I think is SUPER PERFECT! I could NOT stop dipping my finger and eating it (not good). It's a heart healthy sauce but ONLY in moderation. My 5 yr old son LOVES to smell. I had him come smell the BASIL and he LOVED it. Told him I was gonna make a sauce with it.....and .... wooo..hooo... HE ate it because he knew what it was made of!Nutritional Info Per Serving: I didn't count this one but it's SUPER HEART healthy in moderation
Preparation Time: About 10 minutes
Cook Time: 0....not counting what you make to go with it.
1 - cup packed basil leaves
1/2 - cup water
1/2 - cup Extra virgin olive oil
2 - garlic cloves, peeled
1/3 - cup toasted walnuts (toasted brings out the flavor!)
1/4 - cup sun dried tomatoes
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/4 - teaspoon pepper
1/3 - cup shredded parmesan
Soooo...I use my Magic Bullet to blend these items and I would NEVER go back after buying one. SERIOUSLY..... it's on My Favorite Things. Add into your Magic Bullet or food processor/blender all the ingredients above and BLEND and PUREE!

I can't tell you how good this was....I am SO good at self control and I lost ALL of it with this Pesto. Tastes and smells amazing.
Try it dribbled on top of cream cheese for a cracker dip too!
