One of the many things I love about going gluten-free is that I have chosen to make my own foods instead of buying them pre-made. This way, I know exactly what ingredients are being used and what I’m putting into my body.
For a super-quick dinner, try this delicious pesto sauce over gluten-free pasta and chicken. Delicious!
- 4 oz fresh basil leaves
- 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup fresh pine nuts
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed (2 if you don’t like it spicy)
- Salt, to taste
- 3/4 cup shredded manchego cheese
In food processor, mix together first 5 ingredients until blended well. Transfer pesto to bowl and fold in manchego cheese.
Pesto is great served over pasta, chicken, omelets, salads or tomato & mozzarella and it keeps for weeks. Just transfer to mason jar, cover with a layer of olive oil, cover and refrigerate.
