Talina’s Pesto

There are so many delicious recipes for pesto… so of course I have one of my own too!

It’s not too different from the traditional pesto recipe, but its just so delicious.
Pesto is great to put on toast with some tomatoes and extra olive oil, pasta, a grilled cheese and pancetta sandwich, ….oh the possibilities. Try me recipe out and let me know what you think
