I LOVE pesto and I make this exact recipe every time! Why mess with a good thing right?!
My daughter gobbles this up too, so I make a lot to always have some on standby. Make your choice of pasta to go with it.
We have an amazing zucchini pasta recipe on the site that would be perfect! Try it out!
2 tablespoons roasted sunflower seeds
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 cups basil leaves
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Combine sunflower seeds, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, and ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil, and blend. Gradually add the remaining ¼ cup while blending.
Empty into a bowl and scrape sides of blender to get it all out. Stir in the parmesan cheese.
Mix your cooked pasta with the pesto and enjoy this gluten free vegetarian dish!
