Made them in literally 15 minutes. I made 2 batches, and had everything in the freezer and dishes washed in 40 minutes.
What you'll need:
3 standard bunches of basil (say 100 leaves - about 3 packed cups)
100 grams pinenuts
3 cloves of garlic
3/4 cup fresh grated parmesan
1/3 cup olive oil
small ziplock bags depending on how many you're feeding!
What to do:
Pull all leaves off bushes - leaving stems. Place leaves in food processor and pulse a couple of times.
Add garlic, parmesan and pinenuts, pulse in processor until it looks a little on the saucy-side.
Will easily defrost in about 1.5 hours or even heat frozen in saucepan when you want pesto in a hurry, add sundried tomatoes at cooking time if you wish!
