Pesto Milto

Difficulty: Beginner Prep Time 15 mins Total Time 15 mins


One of our lovely customers passed on a recipe that her father, an amazing cook and lover of food, had created. The nutmeg gives this pesto its special "Milto" quality. 



  1. Put everything except cheese in a blender and blend at high speed until smooth, stopping blender every 5-6 seconds to push stuff down with a rubber spatula.

  2. The sauce should be thin enough to run off the spatula easily. If it seems too thick add as much as 1/2 cup more olive oil.

  3. Transfer sauce after completely blended to a bowl and stir in 1 cup grated Parmesan. 

  4. Add 1-2 Tablespoons hot pasta water before mixing sauce with pasta.
