    Chef #794726's Note:

    Great tasting sauce for pasta dishes or as a dipping sauce with corn chips, crackers or pita bread. This is a modified version of a pesto sauce made by Michael Chiarello for Pesto Smashed Potatoes. The basic changes I made were adding more garlic and substituting untoasted pistachios for the toasted pine nuts. Otherwise, the blanching and mixing are pretty much the same.
