Parsley pesto recipe: perfect for seasoning pasta

Parsley pesto

Excellent for seasoning pasta or for flavoring meat and fish: this is how parsley pesto is prepared!

Preparing homemade pesto is very simple and in addition to the classic basil pesto, it is also possible to prepare delicious sauces with other aromatic herbs such as parsley pesto. Unlike the classic Ligurian pesto with basil, pecorino and parmesan, in this case no cheese is used, but if you prefer a tastier sauce you can easily add parmesan, grated parmesan or pecorino. Same thing for garlic: if you don't like it you can easily omit it, while if you like it you can add as much as you prefer.

The sauce prepared following this recipe can be used immediately after preparation to season pasta, but it can also be frozen in practical single-portion containers so that it is ready when needed. Let's see how it's prepared now!
