I am rating a revised version of this because I exchanged butter for olive oil and romano for more parmesan. It has an excellent fresh flavor.

I used pecans because that's what I had available and added more parmesan for the romano. I think it would have been good except that there was way too much salt. If I were to make it again I'd either omit the salt or add a lot less.

yummy pesto and so easy to make for my first attempt at pesto. I shuddered at the amount of oil in it, and tried to cut it down - but it didn't come out with the right consistency and I ended up having to add the extra back in.
