    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a fantastic Pesto recipe, one that I make all the time....I usually make lots, and store in my freezer in icecube containers, so I have it ready to add to pasta recipes....when added to any tomato sauce, it seems to always taste better.

      Made this recipe almost as directed, using 4 large cloves of garlic, half parmesan & half romano, the pine nuts, & then lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P! Also took the tip & froze most of it in icecube form! Among other things, we already like using some of it as an added thin layer topping on a frozen pizza! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

      Excellent recipe, thanks for posting! I added an extra tbsp of tomato puree as the flavour didn't seem strong enough but apart from that followed the recipe exactly. Very easy to make as well.
