Fresh Sage Pesto Recipe
We love growing sage in our garden. Visually enticing, sage is a beautiful addition to any outdoor space with its silvery green hue. The leaves are just a little fuzzy inviting small hands to explore. The scent is amazing, a soft yet savory flavor making this herb an essential for the perfect Sunday dinner. Sage is also one of those herbs that is just as useful in the medicine cabinet as the kitchen. With its ability to help lower cholesterol we like to take a "spoonful" of this medicine with our meal!
Here is a simple sage pesto recipe. If paired with fresh pasta and vegetables, you can easily have a meal on the table in 15 minutes. Perfect for a hectic weeknight!
1 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup fresh Sage leaves
1/2 cup fresh Cilantro leaves
1/2 cup fresh Parsley leaves
1/4 cup chopped roasted walnuts
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 cloves of Garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
While your walnuts are roasting prep the rest of the ingredients.
Combine the herbs, garlic and olive oil in a food processor.
Pulse until creamy, then add the roasted nuts, cheese, and add salt & pepper to taste.
Tossing the pesto with fresh tortellinis, asparagus, peas and mushrooms is a sure winner for every member of the family!
Heart health that tastes great - what could be better?
