    Lovely over any pasta, the traditional way is to to crush everything in a mortar with a pestle, but this recipe uses the quick way!! A blender !! A quick and easy pesto sauce.

      So so yummy! I used a food processor and I love it how easy is to put together. I grow basil on my balcony so I'll make this a lot in the summer. I used walnuts instead of the pine nuts.

      Yum! Very fresh tasting with a nice tang. I made to use as part of another recipe but enjoyed some over crusty bread as an afternoon snack.
