Author Notes: My friend brought me some sage from her garden and I had to try making a pesto out of it. This is a very unique, earthy and mild Pesto.. It's great on artisan bread with tomato and cheese, toasted or cold.CaliZona


Makes about 3 cups

  • 2 cups Fresh Sage
  • 1 1/2 cups Toasted Walnuts
  • 1 cup Aged Asiago Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Toasted Walnut Oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste
  1. Toast the Walnuts first. Preheat oven to 375°F and place Walnuts on a baking sheet. Roast Walnuts until they start to brown and smell toasted about 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure and check them frequently so they don’t burn.
  2. Add all ingredients in to a food processor or blender and puree until desired texture.
