Recipe for Cashew Pesto


Here’s my son Calvin’s delicious take on pesto. Serve over tortellini or your favorite pasta.

Recipe for Cashew Pesto


2 cups Basil
3 cloves chopped Garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Cashews
1/2 cup Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor with a standard blade.

[A blender can be used if you don’t have a food processor.]

2. Pulse the ingredients until you have a consistent texture and it’s well-blended.

3. If the pesto is too thick for you, mix in a little of the pasta water.
