I have an amazing basil plant on my porch. It continues to grow prolifically! I needed to get a good harvest off of it or risk losing it entirely. I decided to go with pesto. I love pesto. It tastes so great and it’s so very simple. This has cheese so it is more primal than paleo. You can leave the cheese out and be just as happy.
2-3 cups of basil
5 cloves of roasted garlic
1/3 cup of olive oil
1 cup of pine nuts
1/2 cup of strong flavored shredded cheese such as Parmesan (I used some leftover Emanteliear)
Blend all ingredients in a blender. Cook a spaghetti squash until soft.
Scrape out insides into a big bowl.
Toss with pesto sauce.
I also made some quick chicken with Italian seasoning and olive oil to add to the pasta.
It was very tasty and very simple. With the chicken there was enough leftovers for two lunches too! Whether you are Paleo or trying to cut carbs this is a tasty meal to make for dinner.
