Mint Pesto:


  1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of the lamb chops with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  2. Grill the chops 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until desired doneness is reached. Remove the chops to a plate and let rest 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Place the chops on a platter and pour any juices that accumulated back over the chops. Spoon the Mint Pesto over and serve.

Mint Pesto:

  1. Add the mint, basil, walnuts, garlic, red pepper and Parmesan to a food processor. Pulse until the herbs are finely chopped. With the motor running, add the olive oil in a steady stream. Add the salt, pepper and lemon zest and pulse until combined. Set aside with plastic wrap set directly over the surface.
