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.

Will be making this pesto again. I added several canned quarters of artichoke hearts and its juice in place of pasta water. Very Delicious!
