Easy Basil Pesto with Almonds
Save some money using garden-grown basil and almonds in place of pricey pine nuts. This recipe is easy, fast, and very tasty. Summer on a plate! Serve over warm pasta with a side salad and a nice loaf of bread. I also spread this on toast. If you have left over, put in a small jar and drizzle some olive oil over the top. Keep refrigerated.

You can use roasted garlic in place of raw.
Toast the almonds at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for about 10 minutes before following the recipe if you'd like roasted almond pesto.
