People asking if we buy the on shelve ingredients, sometimes we do but we prefer to make on our own. We decided to share the different type of the pesto we created. You don’t have to stick with a standard recipe, play with the difference and you taste differently. Just a little toss with the ingredients, you are thus able to create a different flavor.
Making your own pesto you could enjoy it with your senses. The smell of fresh herb and the refining taste of the nuts, garlic, and the olive oil. That’s the reason why we love creating our own pesto – it is easy and simply required your 15 minutes.
Just prepare the ingredients and blend into pesto paste, you could even adjusting your own richness of the flavors and the texture of it. Nevertheless, this kind of sensation only could be made by hands, a jar of pesto you purchase on shelves will never give you the fresh taste of it.
Moreover, having a jar of pesto in your fridge is always a life saver for those busy weeknights. As, all you have to do is cook up some pasta, slather on that pesto and sprinkle with some Parmesan. Done and done. We enjoyed the raw texture that pistachio brings into, therefore, it matches so well with our favorite dishes – Mushroom Pasta with homemade herb pesto sauce.
