This is a super simple pesto using roasted garlic. I do not add pine nuts just because I don't normally stock them and this pesto is fabulous without them! cooking time includes roasting the garlic

So easy to make this delicious pesto, & the only thing not in the recipe was the lemon pepper that I used to season it slightly! Many thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut off the top of a whole head of garlic so most of the cloves show through the top.
- Wrap in foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
- In a food processor add the roasted garlic, basil (crush in fingers as you add it), cheese and about 2 tbs oil.
- Pulse and check consistency. If its too thick add more oil.
- Enjoy over pasta!
