Pistachio & Artichoke Pesto

September, 2019

This pesto makes terrific pizza sauce, but you’ll be looking for reasons to put it on everything.

1/2 cup unsalted shelled pistachios

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup marinated artichoke hearts

1/2 cup chopped parsley (packed tightly)

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

2 cloves garlic, peeled

Salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Place the pistachios, olive oil, artichokes, Parmesan and garlic in a food processor. Secure the lid, and blend until smooth. Taste the pesto, and add salt and pepper to your liking. Pour the mixture into a mason jar, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
