Marjoram Pesto Pasta

Serves 6 Prep Time 30 minutes   Cook Time 15 minutes   Rated:


You know I am a bit doterra crazy...and in fact I have been invited to present a class on cooking with the oils in the USA in mid 2018. That is a bit exciting for me, so watch this space, you may end up as the recipe testers for me! If you didn’t want to use the marjoram oil in this one, no biggie, source fresh marjoram (hopefully you are lucky enough to be growing it!!) and you’re away. I do not grow majoram. Not yet, but I do have a bottle of oil that will last me indefinitely as far as flavour goes. 4-5 drops in this entire dish and it packed an amazing flavour punch! Of course, if you wanted to switch this recipe up and add any other of the leafy herb oils, you instantly have a number of pestos ready to rock and oil!! Happy Days!
