    Rita~'s Note:

    Yummy addition to pasta, cheese spreads, salads on toasted crispy bread, grilled fish or chicken, pizza toppings, etc. You can jar it and use as needed! The olive oil is a judgment call on you own taste. If you want it thick and chunky or creamy.

      Farmers Market day today so I bought fresh basil and made this great recipe for Pesto.. For about $2.50 worth of ingredients and a wee bit of effort I have about $10,00 worth of Pesto. After making it I placed about a tbsp of pesto in ice cube trays ( got 14) and froze them. Then removed them from the trays and placed them in a freezer bag so I can enoy this great recipe during the Winter too Thanks RitaL

      Lovely stuff. I used half parm, half romano and added 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. I also used roasted sunflower seeds-I'm allergic to pine nuts & went heavy on the extra virgin olive oil as we like pesto on the creamy side. We will inhale this tonight with dinner-thanks for posting!

      I had bushels of fresh basil left in my garden and needed to use it al before the first frost, so I made giant batches of this pesto for my freezer. Outstanding recipe. It has the perfect ratio of cheese, nuts and basil. I toasted my nuts and freshly grated some Pargiano Reggiano for that maximum flavor punch and added a little kosher salt and pepper to round it out. YUMMY!
