EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you have lots of fresh basil, make your own pesto. Place 2 cups firmly packed basil leaves, 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup pine nuts, 1/2 cup olive oil and 3 cloves garlic in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend on medium speed about 3 minutes or until smooth.
