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 set to do the trick and make sure she eats, especially walnuts. Beside that, i have i have plenty of basil’s in my garden, So it really make sense for me to go for the Basil pesto for her, Also i can use this pesto in different pastas recipes that i prepare very frequently.(I will share recipe for different pastas in my other post)

Alright, so lets start by grinding the walnut in a mixture. Make it just fine.

IMG-20150830-WA0033 Put all the ingredients listed (except the cheese ) into the mixture along with the grindned walnut  into the mixture. Mix them till they become a smooth paste. 
IMG-20150830-WA0032 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 mouth 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.
