Basil Pesto

Yields: 1 Serving Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 15 Mins

I have never been a big fan of sauces but a few years back I tried pesto and just fell in love with the taste. Since then I have spent a lot of time trying different recipes to mimic some of the best pesto I have had. I feel like I have finally found a recipe that is pretty good. This has the traditional basil taste to it but the arugula really helps add depth and flavor to the mix. The other really key is the cheese. Those who know me well know I am not a huge fan of cheese. After multiple attempts to make pesto without cheese, I concede that the right cheese in the mix makes it better. Romano seems to be the one that blends with the mixture the best. So, check it out for one of your favorite pesto recipes out there. I personally like it on my pasta dishes (check out our Pesto Italian Sausage Pasta) or on chicken pesto sandwiches.
