Gluten Free Pesto

I love pesto because it’s delicious, can pretty much be used on anything, and is naturally gluten free.  You can use this Pesto as a marinade, dressing, pasta sauce, topping, or any other way you may come up with.

(Makes 2 Cups)


  • 2 c. Basil (packed tightly)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 c. Pine Nuts
  • 1/2 c. Olive Oil
  • 1/2 c. Pecorino Romano Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper



  1. In a food processor, combine the basil, garlic, pine nuts, and cheese.  Pulse the food processor until all of the ingredients are coarsely chopped.
  2. Add the oil and run the food processor until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Salt and pepper to preference.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
