Basic Nut Pesto

1 C Walnuts, toasted (350° for approximately 10 minutes)

2 (or more) Cloves of garlic, chopped


Parsley (a good handful) or another herb if you prefer

Cheese (I use Parmesan, and I start with about ½ C)

Salt and pepper

Lemon juice

Process nuts, garlic, herbs, and EVOO... but not for too long... you don’t want a smooth paste. Add cheese. Taste.  Add salt and pepper and lemon juice to taste.

To serve on pasta, thin with a bit of pasta cooking water.
