Pesto

All I can say is, YUM.
I love, love, love pesto.

One of my favorite places to eat is Noodles and Co. Weird, I know, of a celiac person to make such a claim, but you can get rice noodles in place of any of the dishes they serve.
{Not all the sauces are GF, make sure you ask...I know the pesto and penne rosa are safe, but not the Mac&Cheese.}

Try this pesto, it's so good. I tried to replicate Noodles, and I think it came pretty close. Next time I make it I'm going to use 1/2 of the sauce on a pizza, yum!

Pesto

1/2 cup olive oil (must be olive)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 medium cloves of garlic
2 cups fresh basil leaves
3 T. pine nuts

Place all ingredients in blender, except salt/pepper and cream. Process until smooth.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cream or whole milk 1 t. at a time until it's the consistency that you would like. Serve sauce immediately on GF noodles (I like the curly kind to hold the sauce). Makes 1 cup.

I like to saute mushrooms and roma tomatoes in olive oil to add to the pasta and top with more grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Mmm...I love pesto. Thanks for the recipe, and it's nice to know that the Pad Thai is not the only gf option at Noodles!
