Low Fat Pesto Sauce

Submitted by: PJ70F9

Introduction

We love pesto, but most commercial pesto sauces and standard recipes are too high in fat and calories. I found this recipe at http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/sauce/l

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves
    4 Cloves Garlic
    1/4 Cup Skim Ricotta Cheese
    3 Tbsp Olive Oil
    1 Ounce Parmesan Cheese
    1/4 tsp Sea Salt
    1/4 tsp Fresh Gound Pepper

Directions

Place basil leaves and garlic in a food processor and process together (a blender on chop will also work). Add the Ricotta and olive oil through the tube and puree. If the pesto is too thick, warm water can be added to thin out. Stir in Parmesan, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Serve with your favorite pasta. Serves 8.
