      I make pesto several times a year because I got tired of buying it in the store and we seem so go through it so quickly. This was my second batch of the season (the first one I used all parsley!) and I have to say I like the basil taste the best. I planted a whole bed of basil just for pesto. Made for ZWT7.

      A very nice pesto. I quartered the recipe and used it for Tomatoes Roasted With Pesto(Tomatoes Roasted with pesto). Thanks! Made for ZWT 2011-Italy.

      Excellent pesto recipe. My basil is going great guns this year and I also grew parsley for the first time so this recipe was just what I needed! I cut the oil to 1/4 cup and used a bit less parmesan (only because I ran out). I also ran out of pine nuts so subbed almonds for the remainder. I expect I'll be making this one a few more times this year with the amount of basil I have :) Thanks for sharing!

      Great basic pesto recipe...I made a huge batch where I used about 1/2 of the amount of cheese and oil in proportion to the greens & nuts, and I made two even HUGE-ER {lol} batches eliminating the cheese altogether (I used nutritional yeast in one ... I have been vegan for several months now, but my husband isn't PLUS I simply didn't have that much cheese {lol}) -so very versatile and adaptable (I played with nut subs too)- I think I will be making this another couple of dozen times based on the amount of basil my garden has produced this season :) - made for the " I Recommend Tag Game" so thanks to Marlitt for great easy recipe and thanks Boomette for the recommendation :)

      I recently began to like pesto. I made this one today and we loved it. And I didn't add salt and pepper (personal preference). Thanks Marlitt. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
