Summer Pesto
Recipe Intro From feedfeed

I make pesto at least once a week; it's a staple in my household!  I toss it with pasta, use it to top eggs, slather it on a pizza; the options are endless. Whenever I'm making pesto, I reach for my favorite La Tourangelle Organic Olive Oil. It adds a lovely depth of flavor to any type of pesto and gives the perfect peppery finish. When I am making pesto, I like to think of it more like a ratio than a recipe. You can whip this up with whatever greens you have on hand; spinach, arugula, kale and basil are just a few of my favorites.
