Perfect Pesto Sauce!

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! 

adding the salt....
My 5 year old came home from picking 'flowers' for Momma...heart melting!

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!

THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN for stopping by.  I looooove visitors and Truly enjoy hearing HOW your cooking adventures turned out!  Thanks so much!

See you tomorrow!  Be sure to let me know how YOURS turned out!

  1. Hi Heather,
    This looks good. I love pesto and have never made it. I think your Magic Bullet helps. I need one of those. I also want to try your spicy chicken recipe.
