    Rita~'s Note:

    This is a slight change from the original pesto. Lemon zest keeps it lively. Pistachio's keeps it a little cheaper then pine nuts. If you don't like cilantro use all basil. I myself love cilantro. Serve over hot pasta, dollop of pesto in vegetable or chicken soup, use pesto instead of your favorite spread on your sandwich, top a pizza with it and spread some on salmon or chicken then bake.

      Oh Rita, I had no idea this combination could be so good! I used some on paninis and froze the rest into a mini muffin tray resulting in the photo I submitted. Excellent flavor and a great variation on the usual pesto. Thanks!

      One of the best pestos I have ever made, I really recommend this! I used all basil and also added a little lemon juice for that tiny extra kick for our tastes. The pistachios were wonderful once I forcibly explained to my husband that he wasn't allowed to eat them out of my measuring cup! Really delicious, I think I like this even better than the traditional pesto - thanks Rita!

      This is spectacular! Our son is allergic to pine nuts and walnuts but not pistachios. He has never tasted pesto! When I thought of this recipe, husband said, google it! This is the one I used and everyone loves it. Funny thing is, no one notices that there is anything different. I added lemon juice as well and cilantro paste from a tube. I'll be putting it on toasted naan bread for a pizza as well as using on salmon and pasta. Thanks, Food.com!
