Parsley pesto

Herbaceous, earthy, nuttily, taste of lemon and oily, this is the new favorite pesto! Ms Aitch and Mr El may eat it with a big spoon on its own. It tastes also very good with spaghetti. You can add a lot of fresh herbs like parsley for sure and basil or chervil.

    Das Pesto ist wirklich toll in Szene gesetzt. Genau nach meinem Geschmack. Da bekommt man Hunger auf mehr.

      Lieben Dank für das Kompliment Malte :-) Das Pesto macht sich auch auf einer Portion Nudeln gut.
      Grüße, Eva
