Ready to throw it all in the processor:
If you love garlic and would like to make your own garlic scape pesto here is how I make it. You can substitute the pine nuts for walnuts or pecans if you prefer.
Garlic Scape Pesto:
1 C. of Parmesan
1/2- 3/4 C. of toasted pine nuts
1/2 C. chopped parsley leaves (no stems, too course)
Salt to taste
Put the scapes in the processor and chop then add the parsley and process it a little more. Then add in the nuts and process it until the nuts are chopped. Then add in the cheese and process it some more until it is all blended well, but still has texture. Turn the processor on and slowly add in the oil while it is running. At this point I always taste test it and continue adding nuts, cheese or salt until I get the consistency & flavor that I want. Now enjoy on sauteed veggies, fresh bread or pasta!
