Pesto Everything, Please!

Blaire Benson

We're sharing a simple basil pesto recipe from the kitchen of our Bedding Manager, Randall Barnes. (And if you want to learn more about Randall, check out his employee spotlight blog!) This foolproof recipe incorporates freshly harvested basil (which is in stock now) that will turn your cupboard pasta, and so much more, into something truly delectable!

Easy Basil Pesto


  • 2 cups fresh basil, packed
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Put ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. If you have the time, use a mortar and pestle.
