Fresh Basil – Pine Nuts – Parmesan
This was my second batch – thus the already messy blender.
sea salt – recipe didn’t call for this but I have found that a dash of sea salt will liven up most anything! Brings all the flavors together. A must in any kitchen:)
… till beautifully green and smooth:)
Gnocchi – potato and flour dumplings – an old Italian tradition.
Boil for 4 to 6 minutes!
Pesto on Gnocchi w/ a little Alfredo sauce too. YUM YUM!!
Girls even liked it – minus the pesto of course!
Would have looked nicer on a ‘real’ plate but hey, my dishwasher was already pretty full so we pulled out the paper china!!
That looks yummy… I like to freeze my extra pesto to pull out later 🙂

That pesto looks awesome! Best pesto recipe ever…
Pizza Crust shaped into 15 mini pizzas…
1 tsp. pesto on top
1 slice garden tomato
Combine 1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese and 1 cup mozzarella cheese and put on top of pizzas.
Bake 12 minutes at 425.
Ummm. We loved them. Obviously, you could do one large pizza… Enjoy your fresh pesto. I am going to have to do some basil next year!

I did put 3 little jars of pesto in the freezer. I felt soooo Martha Stewartish:)
