I used fresh basil from my herb garden but, of course you can just grab a bunch at the store. Making homemade pesto really is an incredibly simple process. All it consists of (for this recipe 😉 ) is fresh basil, olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic, s&p and pecans! I know, yes I used pecans. Why?? Well, I didn’t have pine nuts which is traditional. I used what I had on hand, and that’s what I do most nights. Use what you got!

I can tell you with 110% honesty that Wright® Brand Bacon is my favorite bacon I have ever cooked with. I said it… the BEST! I will forever and ever amen always purchase this bacon from now on. I just can’t put my finger on what is so good about it but it. just. is. I swear every time I use it in a recipe (which is often, I might add) it smells just like my favorite breakfast joint all through the house… I love that!

YUM, I fry up the bacon extra crispy so it doesn’t get soggy as it sits in the pasta. Serve with a side salad, bread and you have one killer weeknight meal! If you like a more powerful pesto flavor, I suggest doubling the pesto recipe.

I found my Wright® Brand Bacon at Walmart and got a great value! I purchased the Thicker Cut variety but they have others like Meatier Slices, Heartier Flavor and Naturally Hardwood Smoked.
