Pesto ala genovese


Pesto is a popular Italian creamy sauce based on basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts and pecorino cheese or parmesan. is a very fragrant light sauce that we all like and that is why we have loved it and find it everywhere


  • 1 mat. Fresh basil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 30 g pine nuts
  • 30 g cashew nuts
  • 50 gr extra virgin olive oil
  • A little lemon (optional)
  • Or grated parmesan (or mixed with pecorino)
  • Salt Pepper


  1. In a small frying pan, roast the pine nuts and the broken cashew nuts. (I keep a small amount of both and I thicken them so that they look and to feel the taste more intense)
  2. We take the blender and put all our ingredients except the parmesan. Mash them in a blender, and then add the parmesan, which is grated at that time.

-We can keep our pesto in the fridge for a long time in a jar and on top by covering it with olive oil
