An okay base but needed a lot of changes. 1. Way too much salt. The Magic Bullet recipe book lists the salt as optional - wish it did so here. Had to add a lot of extra basil, pine nuts, and oil to try to save it and it's still very salty. Would recommend starting with none and adding to taste. 2. Garlic. The recipe book lists 1-2 cloves. I did one because two seemed like overkill, and it was still very garlicky.
