Day 110: Pesto Sauce

This easy 3-minute pesto sauce is the only pesto sauce recipe you'll ever need. Put it in pasta, salads, sandwiches and more!!!

What is pesto? It's a sauce made out of basil, pine nuts, and some sort of hard cheese.

What is it made out of? Pesto is basil, pine nuts, cheese, salt/pepper, all blended with olive oil.

No olive oil? Lucky for you, you can still make pesto!!! You can use vegetable oil instead. Or some kind of neutral oil. This is not to say let's use vegetable oil all-time - olive oil brings out a great unique flavor that really ties all the flavors together.

You can eat this with pasta (as shown), sandwiches and much, much more!


Level: 👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 3 minutes|Serves: 4|



  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts

  • 1 cup basil

  • 1/4 cup olive oil (in worst-case scenario, vegetable oil will work - any neutral oil)

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1/4 cup parmesan (optional, but adds a nice taste)


  1. In a blender or food processor blend together all ingredients, adding the basil last.

  2. Serve with pasta, salads, sandwiches, or whatever you choose. :)
