One of my friend owns a restaurant.

She servers dishes which are made from home-made crops.

The other day, I joined her to make genovese sauce, which is useful to cook italian, since it is time to pick a full of basil from her garden.


So I was willing to help her.

I found it easy to make the sauce, so let me introduce how to make it.

First of all, what you need to prepare is here.

-- 100g of basil leaf
-- 60g of powdery cheese (We used parmesan cheese)
-- 200cc of olive oil
-- 50g of pine nut
-- a piece of garlic
-- a pinch of salt

Preparing all ingredients, it almost finish.

You just mix them up with a blender until finely cut. (Plz tell me better expression if there is)

That's all!!

Once enough quantity of sauce is made, it is good idea to keep it in a freezer in order to use throughout a year.

If you have still extra basil leaves, I recommend to make dried basil which is good to put on tomato sauce pasta!

This is easier than making sauce--- just put leaves on a plate in microwave for 5 minutes.

They get dry and easily crushed by hand.

Try cooking if you have basil in your garden!!
