Garlic Scapes!

Looking for something to do with 8-9 garlic scapes? Look no further. Here's a great recipe for pesto. I tried this last week in the food processor - easy, fast and delicious over pasta with some grape tomatoes tossed on top.

8-9 garlic scapes, flowery part removed, cut to 1/4 inch pieces
1/3 cup walnuts
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4-1/2 cup grated parmigiano
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper to taste

Put scapes and walnuts in the food processor and process until mostly smooth
Drizzle oil into bowl slowly
Spoon into bowl
Add parmigiano to taste
Add salt & pepper

  1. made this last night with a blender, pecorino cheese, quinoa instead of pasta, and italian sausage. Very easy and very dilicious! Thanks Tara!
