Garlic Scape Pesto

There are certain dishes that are so easy and delicious, I make them multiple times and go to them as a standby when I have company over.  That said, this one in particular usually vanishes so fast I can’t get a picture, and due to its vanishing act, I haven’t been able to blog about it either.  With 6 people over this weekend, this was gone in the blink of an eye, but I did manage to take my bowl aside and photograph it before digging in, so it’s finally time to post a VERY easy and delicious recipe.

Ingredients
1 bag garlic scapes, approx. 1/2 cup chopped
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 handful (approx 10-12) basil leaves
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
S+P

Directions
1. Ready for this? Combine everything except olive oil in a food processor and blend. Add olive oil, and drizzle in until pesto has reached desired consistency. Mix into pasta, and enjoy!

Personally, I really enjoy this  with some grape tomatoes, although for a different flavor, some salty kalamatas are good as well.  my favorite thus far has been on whole wheat angel hair, although to be honest, this stuff would be good on CARDBOARD.  With a side of grape tomatoes…

  • Just discovered your blog–love it! This recipe looks yummy. I just made a similar pesto from what I was calling “onion scapes”—but aren’t really called anything! Good to see more CT-based food writers out there! I’m in Fairfield. :)
