Pesto – Makes about a Jam jar’s worth

Love this cute little recipe, love it even more as you can keep it in the fridge and it will keep for two weeks. Imagine you’ve just got home after a crazy day at work, the commute from hell…wedged up under somebodies armpit. You haven’t done your food shop… but wait you have a jar of this yumminess calling out your name. Put on some spaghetti add a couple spoons of the Pesto and finish with lots of cracked black pepper and sprinkling of parmesan. This one’s just for pleasure!
