Spicy Pesto Please

Good Morning!
On the hunt for something super yummy, healthy and fast for dinner tonight? Well I've got it right here for you. Its my spicy pesto recipe that is awesome on literally anything. It will take you 3 minutes to whip up... unless all of your kitchen appliances malfunction at the exact same time like mine did last night. Seriously, my immersion blender self destructed and my food processor started making a hissing sound instead of slicing. I was a little pissy about it, but then sucked it up and chopped everything until my arm almost fell off- it was a little chunkier than normal, but was still great!

Okay- in a blender or food processor, throw all of the below ingredients and blitz until smooth. Use this pesto on fish, meat, pasta... roasted veggies.... the options are endless!
Oooh! It would be really good plopped on top of a tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad.... mmm. Doo it.

Have a great Thursday... Tomorrows Friday- WOOP.

Spicy Pesto

In a blender or food processor blitz the following ingredients together and use it to top your favourite things!
1 cup of loosely packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 a dried chili (i promise- its not too spicy!)

1/2 a lemon, juiced
1/4 cup of shredded asiago cheese (or parmesan)
1 small handful of roasted (or raw) unsalted almonds
salt and pepper to taste.
