Sage Pesto

Well I am calling it pesto – why because I used basil leaves in it – haha. I actually bought sage to make a sage brown butter sauce for the ravioli that I was going to make well I was short on time and decided to make a pasta from a packet and needed a sauce. I initially only used sage, basil, walnuts, garlic and lemon juice. I thought it was a little bland so out came the jalapeno and the sun dried tomatoes and they made such a difference. If you want it to be spicier just add another jalapeno.

When your pasta is ready just toss it with your pasta and eat it.


makes 1.5 cups

  • 1 cup sage leaves (washed)
  • 2 cups basil leaves (washed)
  • 1 jalapeno (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • juice of half a lemon
  • zest of the whole lemon
  • salt (to taste)


Blend all ingredients together in your food processor. Voila!
