This year my daughter and her friend planted basil on Earth Day back in April. They planted the basil from seeds and and it grew into large basil plants. To use it up I decided to make Pesto Sauce.
I picked 2 cups of fresh basil leaves to make the pesto sauce.
I made tortellini pasta with the Pesto Sauce. You can use any kind of pasta you like!
This pesto sauce tastes so amazing and I made it for my family two times already!
