Nostalgic Basil Pesto

Ever since I can remember, my family would make pesto in the summer. We had basil plants in our backyard and the house would smell fantastic for a week. We didn't have a recipe but instead a list of ingredients and a delicious flavor we were tasting for.

I channeled those memories to replicate a delicious and simple basil pesto recipe. Feel free to adjust the proportions to your taste.
