I made Pesto and it tasted awesomely

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Gather your ingredients, you'll need:
- 1 cup fresh basil leaves
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 3 gloves of garlic (chopped)
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon of salt

Throw the spinach, garlic, basil and pine nuts into a food processor and pulse until chopped.
Gradually add the olive oil while still processing until smooth.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and black pepper.

And all done!

So I wanted to give my pesto a try, not just as a dip but an actual dish.  I ended up doing a delicious crab sandwich! For that you will need:
  • Your freshly made (or bought) Pesto
  • Chopped imitation crab meat
  • Cream cheese
  • Cojack Cheese (cheddar could also be delicious)
  • Bread, obviously (it can be white or wheat, whatever you want)

Mix in a bowl the crab, cream cheese and a few spoonfuls of pesto.
Layer the bread with Cojack and place it on a skillet over medium - low heat until the cheese melts (or the bread begins burning). Later add the crab-pesto-cream cheese mixture and enjoy!
