It’s been a while since I’ve wanted to cook some pasta with homemade pesto and finally that day has come.  

I used almost all of my poor basil plant’s leaves.

It’s worth making your own pesto- it’s tastier, it’s strongly flavored and you know what ingredients it contains.  

I forgot to take pictures so the tiny bowl is the leftover pesto after using most of it with the pasta. This is my pesto recipe :
