Homemade Cilantro/Parsley Pesto

Homemade Cilantro and Parsley Pesto is what we made in cooking class. In case you didn't know, I hold a mini cooking class at work to kids with Autism. It's more for fun than an actual serious cooking class. The kids are able to help each other make simple and easy dishes and it really helps with their cognitive and motor skills.They seem to enjoy it, especially the eating part lol.

  • a bunch of parsely
  • a bunch of cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • any kind of pasta noodle of your choice

Absolutely delicious recipe! I'm a giant giant fan of pesto pasta but almost never never eat it! Like once or twice a year or never! I've never thought of making it with parsley or cilantro! That's awesome, since it's expensive to get basil here!

That's one of the reasons why we opted for cilantro and parsely. Basil was out of our budget. I hope you try it soon.
