Nothing says summer to me like homemade pesto. I could literally eat this all day – with just a loaf of bread. This is another recipe that perfectly highlights summer basil – and takes NO time to make. Literally, 5 minutes. This is so worth the time, is cheaper than buying store bought pesto, and you know EXACTLY what is going in your body. Simply serve with pasta.
