Fresh Parsley Pesto

I have always hated green goopey things.
I have always promised myself I will never ever feed any child of mine mashed peas.

Until the day I met fresh pesto.
Helloo you gorgeous lean green mean you!


I stumbled upon this original recipe for pesto while preparing to make this redics-delish for Chicken Pesto Stuffed Shells.  Yes.  You literally died and went to heaven.  Since then I have discovered other amazing ways to use consume this pesto.  Such as on quesadillas.  Or what about on grilled cheese sandwiches?!  Or on sourdough toast?  I even submit that a Parsley Pesto Cake would send your tongue into sensory overload. . . hmm.  Now that's a thought.

Soo without further ado, I present to you Fresh Parsley Pesto

  • 1 cup fresh parsley {packed}
  • 1/2 clove fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoons roasted pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • lemon juice, salt & pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in blender and blend well
Yields one cup
Store in fridge if you don't consume it in one meal


My fingers are currently sticky from spray paint because the sun is shining today and that means my $2 thrifted chairs are finally getting their long awaited remake.  I may also let my shoulders see some sun while catching up on emails, as today's goal is to do as much as possible outside.  Because it literally should be a crime to spend sunny-days-off doing dishes.

Happy wednesday friends!

  5. It is the current great sorrow of my life that I cannot seem to find pinenuts anywhere near me. Is this a common problem? I'm in love with Pesto. Absence is making my heart grow fonder, but my tummy grow sadder...
