So for my pesto, I used a few different things. I started with half and half for a creamy base. I added quite a bit, maybe quarter to half a cup, of grated parm, and some minced garlic. I put it all in my magic little bullet, added some fresh basil leaves and began the blending. Using fresh basil is one of my favorites. I just love the way it looks and even more the way it smells. Heaven.
So meanwhile, on the other side of my kitchen (two feet away), I cooked up some chicken breast and some gluten free pasta. I also cut up some tomato and cheddar cheese to add to the sauce and garnish the top of my dish.
I finished mixing my sauce, added it to the pasta and cut up the chicken to put in. Sprinkle a little shredded parm on the top, and we’re ready to eat! You can also cut up basil leaves real small and add them into the sauce after blending to make more the basil flavor. I highly suggest doing that..
