This creamy pesto recipe tastes amazing with fresh bread or on my Pesto Party Pizza. I hope you take advantage of the print option feature on the recipe below.  There are also a few links at the bottom of this post featuring the creamy pesto recipe.

You will need FRESH BASIL for this recipe.  There is no reason you can’t grow your own pesto year-round.  Please see my growing tips featured on my website.

New Growth From Basil Indoors
  • Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Parmesan cheese
  • walnuts
  • garlic
  • Lemon Juice
  • Olive Oil
  • Sugar

In this recipe, I use walnuts because it is what I have on hand almost year-round.  You can use Pine Nuts for this recipe but they can be expensive and hard to find.  Scroll down to get the details on the Creamy Pesto Printable Recipe card on my site.  Don’t forget to reach out to me to let me know if you have questions.

      I love that you include cream in your pesto. Must make it extra rich. Wonder, have you tried adding pine nuts to this recipe? LOVE those!
