Mint and Ricotta Pesto

Mint is an unusual ingredient to use in pesto as it can be quite strong, but it lends a wonderful freshness to pesto. It also makes the pesto a great ingredient for serving with meat such as lamb or beef – why not try stirring a few tbsp. of the pesto into your favourite meat casserole.

Ingredients List:
6 tomatoes
20 basil leaves
10 mint leaves
2 cloves of garlic
50g pine nuts
3 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. fresh ricotta cheese
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Black pepper

Directions:
1) Seed and dice the tomatoes.

2) Place the tomatoes, basil leaves, mint leaves, garlic cloves, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese and olive oil into a food processor and blend until smooth.

3) Season well with black pepper.
