Creamy Basil Pesto

Post  MeghanSTL on 1/15/2017, 10:35 pm

We have to grow enough basil purely to make this often for DH throughout the summer. as he says, "it's heavy duty".

Creamy Basil Pesto

2 1/2 c fresh basil leaves
4 cloves garlic, minced
2oz pine nuts
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 c parmesean cheese
1/4 c olive oil
fussili noodles
shrimp (optional)

Ground basil with mortar & pestle (may use blender or food processer, I prefer the hard way). Ground in garlic, then pine nuts slowly until smooth. Transfer to small bowl, mix in cheese & oil. Pour cream into a large saucepan, stir in mixture, let simmer, stirring often, allow to thicken. Add sauteed shrimp, if desired. Serve hot over noodles. Garnish with chopped tomatoes & parmesean cheese.

Enjoy!
