I have always been pretty tried and true when it comes to pesto, but I thought this “Skinny” pesto from Skinnytaste (which has shaped up to be one of my favorite websites for great ideas) was worth a try. And you know, I hardly noticed the lack of pine nuts and less oil. Give it a try – makes pesto less of a no-no if you’re watching calories etc.
- 1 cup basil
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
In a food processor pulse basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper until smooth. Slowly add the olive oil while pulsing. Store in a sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use or you can freeze this in ziplocks bags to use at a later date.
