I made basil pesto for the first time on Sunday. I really felt like having savory crepes for lunch, so I made a savory crepe as in the savory crepe recipe on my blog, spread some basil pesto, added chopped tomatoes, grated mozarella cheese, and wrapped it up like a present;) The result was delicious!! Raj had 2 of those crepes!
Here goes the recipe for Basil Pesto:
1 1/2 cups basil
1/4 cup roasted pine nuts
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Put all the ingredients into a food processor, and blend it well and you have good basil pesto, for crepes, sandwiches, paninis !! :)
