If like me, mealtimes at the moment are a bit of a rush, why not give this green pesto a try? Knocked up in less than 5 minutes, it’s the perfect solution for a quick tea time meal. Stir into some pasta or spread on top of chicken fillets, voila!!
50g Fresh basil leaves
30g Parmesan (more or less, as required)
60g Pine nuts
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
Put everything (except for the Parmesan) into the blender and blitz for a few seconds.
Add the finely grated Parmesan, season to taste and add more olive oil or lemon juice to loosen, if required.
