Fresh basil is one of my favorite plants to grow in my summer garden. I love to make pesto using my basil with walnuts and pecans. I am going to share with you my Italian family recipe!


I am teaming up with some of my Instagram friends to have a garden party. We are sharing what are our favorite items to share in the garden to the kitchen. I am sharing my families Italian pesto that is made with walnuts and pecans.

Here are some fun images of collecting pesto in my summer garden on the homestead:

An easy recipe for homemade basil that is made with a few simple ingredients. is made from basil, garlic, cheese, nuts, and olive oil. I absolutely adore pesto and all of that super fresh and very garlic flavor!  It’s something I especially start to crave more once the weather gets warm and the garden starts to flourish!.  While store-bought pesto can taste great, absolutely nothing compares to the flavor of homemade pesto and my families recipe. I put pesto on everything I can eggs, stir fry’s, salmon and chicken I just love it on just about anything main course.

Here is one of the best tips I have for my pesto. I freeze little bits in ice cube trays and when I need some pesto for a dish I pop one out to cook with. So easy and they are the perfect size portions.
