Every Saturday morning, I hit my local farmers and stock up on fresh produce for the week. My favorite purchase is always the huge bunches of Basil – and have started adding it to everything; soup, scrambled eggs, champagne - even my floral arrangements have sprigs of basil because the smell is incredible!

Basil has tons of health benefits: it reduces inflammation, relieves allergies and boosts our immune system! Here is a quick pesto recipe that tastes so fresh and delicious with everything, you’ll never buy the preservative filled type in a jar again!

4 cups fresh basil
1 cup Pignoli (pine nuts)
1 cup Pecorino Romano Cheese
¾ cup olive oil

Add all ingredients to a food processor (or blender) and pulse until combined and smooth. Serve over your favorite pasta (I love the gluten-free brown rice noodles) or as a marinade for your favorite meat– and enjoy!

Love salmon? Check out my 4 Ingredient recipe tomorrow for Pesto Baked Salmon using your fresh pesto!
