Wow, this was terrific pesto for such few ingredients! I doubled the recipe and we enjoyed it with some homemade bread. I've never made pesto before because I can't get any pine nuts where I am living now, but this recipe was perfect as is. Thanks for a new regualar!

This was great! We deal with multiple food allergies and have to avoid dairy and tree nuts, so this was the perfect recipe for us. I used a blender (no food processor). This would have worked well with a doubled recipe, but there was not enough volume to get a single batch very smooth. I used a mortar & pestle to finish grinding. This was made for "Freeze It!" Tag and it kept beautifully in a quart freezer ziplock bag. I thawed the pistou sauce by placing the bag in a pan of room temperature water for a few minutes. We tossed this with hot thin rice noodles - yum! Just as good as when it was freshly made. Thanks for posting, kburie!
