Recipe: Basil and Parmesan Pesto

Basil pesto recipe from grandma’s garden in Fallon, every year Ginette plants basil so I can make pesto, love it. I like to eat spaghetti with basil pesto, pour it cold over hot pasta, the pesto will melt with a little Parmesan, it’s sublime. The basil pesto will keep for several months in the refrigerator, it will suffice to ensure that it is always covered with olive oil. Once picked, you have to work quickly, because the basil leaves quickly wither in the heat.
