  • In a food processor, finely chop by pulsing the walnuts and garlic.
  • Add the jalapeño, the Parmesan cheese, and basil and process the mixture until fully blended.
  • Slowly pour in olive oil while processing until the oil and pesto mix is combined.
  • To taste, season with salt and pepper.


Swap out the jalapeño pepper for two serrano peppers (they are typically smaller) to increase the heat.
