Time for a good Basil walnut Pesto !!

My daughter is a very picky eater, She doesn’t eat any kind of nuts. So, I am all going to do the trick and make sure she eats nuts, especially walnuts. Besides that, I have I have plenty of basils in my garden, So it really makes sense for me to go for the Basil pesto for her, Also I can use this pesto in different kinds of pasta recipes that I prepare very frequently.(I will share recipe for different kinds of pasta in my other post)

Alright, so let’s start by grinding the walnuts in a mixture. Make it just fine.

Mix them till they become a smooth paste.

If you are going to use this pesto right away, then you can mix the cheese while grinding. Since this recipe is 6-8 servings and we have only 3

Since this recipe is 6-8 servings and we have only 3 people in our house, I prefer to put in the refrigerator without adding any cheese.

This can last for 2 weeks in a tight container.  I hope you find this very simple and fast.
