I love to make Pesto, but cleaning up afterward is a challenge for me, especially when it comes to Basil Pesto. For some reason, this just seems to splatter everywhere. Don’t ask me why? it just happens. And the crazy part is that I use a food processor. I was craving Basil Pesto..sometimes I like to spread Basil or Tomato pesto onto bread or crackers and eat it. Do you enjoy eating pesto without Pasta?

grow my own herbs. But this time the Basil seeds I planted did not work out, so I ended up buying Basil for this recipe. Don’t you think that Basil such an intense aromatic smell and taste? I always use one specific brand, but since I am not able to find it here, I bought another brand. My tomatoes and Green Beans are doing great actually and so are the rest of the herbs I planted. Do you like to grow your own herbs? When you grow your own fruits, vegetables, and herbs the taste is much more intense…fresh water, good soil, and some TLC is all they need.
