Bright Green Lemony Pesto

I never measure.  That’s why I like Jamie Oliver – a dash of this and a shake of that.  Also his accent is adorable. This combination of ingredients always works, no matter the proportions.

In your food processor, whip up:

  • Lemon zest (at least a whole lemon)
  • Lemon juice
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fine sea Salt
  • Organic ground cayenne – a dash is good
  • Ground black pepper
  • Garlic (not more than two cloves, unless you like it really garlicky)
  • Pine nuts
  • Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • Drizzle in olive oil last

Looks pretty over little curly fusilli noodles, or keep on hand to brighten up sandwiches.
