Lemon Basil Pasta
A delicious way to use the beautifully fragrant herb, lemon balm- add chicken and other mild vegetables, like summer squash, if you wish.
Combine in a food processor:
1 c. fresh lemon balm leaves
½ c. olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic
Optional- add these if you want a denser pesto, or wish to use it as a spread:
¼ c. walnuts
¼ c. (or more) parmesan cheese
Stir into ½ lb. cooked pasta, along with 2 c. lightly sautéed tomatoes and
1-2 Tbsp. minced onions. Add more sautéed veggies if you please.
Garnish with a good sprinkle of parmesan.
