Pesto, Pesto, Pesto

Pesto sauce is great for just about anything and so so so simple to make. Rather then going out and buying some, I decided to make my own sauce. This is a recipe that I found from Foodnetwork.com and it tastes delicious...


1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cloves of garlic coarsely chopped
2 cups grated (4 ounces) asiago cheese
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 ounces baby spinach
3 ounces arugula
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

P.S. if you want to spice it up a bit you can add a jalapeno pepper to the mixture. You can also use Parmesan cheese instead of asiago if you'd like to. There are various ways of making pesto, you can always experiment and find the one that's best for you.


In a food processor combine the walnuts, garlic, cheese, salt and pepper. Process until the mixture is smooth. Add the spinach and the arugula and process until blended. With the machine running gradually add the olive oil. And you're done!!

Now you're ready to pour the pesto over pasta, over grilled chicken, over salad, or you can even make a grilled chicken pesto sandwich like I did. Yuuummm to the max!!
