Here is a delicious and very simple pesto recipe by Gwyneth Paltrow. It's great as a spread for good bread or crackers! I really love this quick and easy pesto. It's a winner!

We thought the flavor of this pesto was wonderful as a sauce for pasta. I might have had a similar experience with the texture on pasta as a previous reviewer did, but I think this would easily be remedied by adding a little broth next time to make it a bit more liquidy (and honestly, it didn't really bother us that much). I made one recipe for two for dinner, over half a pound of pasta. I am betting this would be really great as a dip too.
