Description

I was excited to see garlic scapes in my CSA box, but I had no idea what to do with them. Some online research lead me to pesto, and this is, in my opinion, one of the best pestos I have made.

Ingredients

  • 3 whole Garlic Scapes, The Flower Bud Removed And Cut Into 1 Inch Pieces
  • 4 whole Garlic Cloves, Roughly Chopped
  • ¼ cups Basil Leaves
  • ½ cups Parsley Leaves
  • ½ cups Pine Nuts
  • ½ cups Asiago Cheese, Shredded
  • ½ teaspoons Sea Salt, More To Taste If Needed
  • ¾ cups Olive Oil, Up To A Cup If Needed

Preparation

Put everything except the olive oil in a food processor. Blend until it has formed a paste. Taste the paste for seasoning and adjust if needed. Turn the food processor back on and add the olive oil. Check the consistency, and add a little more oil if you like it looser.

Toss with hot pasta, or try it smeared on a bit of bread. Enjoy!
