Simple Sage Pesto


Makes approximately 8 ounces
2 cups fresh sage leaves, loosely packed
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
1/4 cup pine nuts
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
a pinch each of salt and pepper


In the bowl of a food processor (or in a blender), add the sage, garlic, cheese and pine nuts. Pulse the ingredients a few times until chopped. In a steady stream, slowly add the olive oil while the food processor or blender is running. Stop to scrape down the sides once with a rubber spatula and add the salt and pepper. Run the processor for a few more seconds to combine thoroughly.

Transfer the pesto to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. The pesto will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
