Are you looking for an easy, fast-made, delicious Pesto recipe? This basil pesto recipe won't let you down.

As Spring is around the corner, everyone is looking for fresh and colorful recipes. Pesto should be on your must-have list in the fridge.
I have so many Pesto recipes, which I will share with you. But for today, I decided to share the simplest but best pesto recipe- My basil Pesto recipe. This one is so simple but so good.
Let me tell you, I ate Pesto for the first time when I was 20. My husband introduced me to that green, fresh, and oily sauce, and I immediately fell in love .How could I sleep on Pesto my entire life?

ingredients for the perfect fresh Pesto recipe

There are so many bad Pestos in the supermarkets. I really feel sorry for the people who don't know how good fresh Pesto tastes. The ingredients for the traditional Pesto Genovese are Basil, Garlic, pine nuts, Parmigiano Reggiano, and Olive oil. The ingredients are not the cheapest ones. That's why many pesto producers use cheap olive oil, cashews instead of pine nuts, and not the best quality cheese.
Using high-quality Virgin olive oil is important, no matter what meal. If there is one ingredient I would not save money on, it is olive oil. You will never return to cheaper ones once you have good quality olive oil. Remember, we all want to invest in ourselves, so we must be careful what we put into our bodies.

wait, what, made in 3 minutes?

Another reason to make your own pesto recipe is that it takes only a maximum of 3 minutes to make. Your Pasta needs 10 minutes to be al dente, so you have an extra 5 minutes to chill.
Pesto is awesome for many recipes like sandwiches, marinade chicken, and so many more. It lasts at least one week in the fridge.
The last reason you should make your own pesto recipe is to freestyle a little bit and add your favorite vegetable. This is my definition of a fresh, delicious recipe.
