Not really a flower.....but then again, those tomatoes came from a flower...right?
Yesterday's little harvest gave us our first pesto of the season...yum! It's been a few years since I have grown basil, but I quickly remembered why homemade pesto has been a big favorite in my house.....so much better than store bought...and so easy to make!
1c fresh basil leaves
1/4 c olive oil
1-2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1T pine nuts
5T Parmesan cheese
1-2T melted butter
Toss all of the ingredients into the food processor starting with the basil and pine nuts, heat in the microwave for a minute to warm up.......then eat. Yum!
