Peasy Pesto

This take on pesto has a slightly lighter taste than the original.  The peas bulk up it up and help you get a little more bang for your caloric buck.  This pesto is great as a sandwich spread or tossed with pasta.  And it’s a snap to make; easy peasy even!

Yield: 6 – 8 servings; Prep Time: 10 minutes

  • 10 oz frozen peas, thawed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Place peas and oil in food processor and process until homogenous, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until well combined.
