Preparation of Pesto Sauce:

Step 1: prepare the pine nuts.

In a dry frying pan, fry the pine nuts until light tint over medium heat, for 3 minutes. Roasted nuts give the sauce a rich nutty flavor.

Step 2: prepare the basil.

Rinse the basil under running water and pat dry with a paper towel. Then cut the basil with a knife on a cutting board into large pieces.

Step 3: prepare the garlic.

Peel and chop the garlic into small pieces with a knife on a cutting board.

Step 4: prepare the cheese.

Grate cheese on a cutting board coarse grater. Best buy "Parmesan" made in Italy. You can use any other hard cheese, but then it will no longer be a classic Pesto sauce.

Step 5: prepare the pesto sauce.

Put cheese, garlic, basil and nuts in a blender. Grind the ingredients for 30 seconds, then little by little, add a thin stream of olive oil without turning off the blender. Cook the sauce for about 2 minutes. The consistency sauce should be like thick pasta. The weight of the finished sauce is about 300 grams.

Step 6: serve the pesto sauce.

Transfer the finished sauce to the gravy boat and serve with baked vegetables, salad, fish or pasta. Also, the sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 days. To do this, transfer it to a glass jar and pour olive oil on top so that the sauce does not darken or oxidize. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - Pesto sauce can be used instead of pizza-based tomato paste.

- - If you do not have any ingredients, they can be replaced. But, if you want to cook exactly the traditional recipe for Pesto sauce, strictly follow the recipe. Instead of basil, you can use parsley, cilantro or coriander. Pine nuts can be replaced with hazelnuts or almonds. Instead of olive oil, you can use sunflower oil.

- - Do not add salt to the sauce, because the Parmesan cheese is quite salty.

- - If you want to make the sauce according to the classic recipe, use a pestle and mortar instead of a blender.
