NETTLE PESTO RECIPE
4 cups fresh nettle tops – roughly chopped
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup nuts of your choice (I used ½ almonds, ½ pecans in my last batch..yum!)
2-6 cloves garlic according to taste
¼ cup Romano or Parmesan cheese (optional)
HOW TO MAKE IT...
Put all ingredients in a food processor and process until creamy, making sure all the nettles are incorporated. That’s it! What an incredible taste! Not only is it good on the traditional pasta, but the pasta makes a wonderful spread on toast or crackers. Also good as a dip. It freezes well.
