Garlic Scape Pesto

This recipe is a couple of weeks late...since most people have already harvested their Garlic scape's to help promote bulb growth in their garlic!!

So a little education first!
These curly spikes growing out of  your garlic with a whitish spear at the tip? This is the garlic scape. Once they start to get curly and before the white tip starts to flower, you want to snip these off right where they meet with the rest of the plant!

Garlic Scape Pesto
1/2 Cup Toasted Pine Nuts
1 1/2 Cup washed and roughly chopped Fresh Basil
3/4 Cup Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Cups Chopped Garlic Scape's
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Throw all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until combined into a paste.
Pour into cute little mason jars and refrigerate until ready to use!!! I use mine on roasted chicken breasts, Tilapia, and of course Pasta!! Just add a little more fresh Parmesan and you are ready to go!
