    This is a super simple pesto using roasted garlic. I do not add pine nuts just because I don't normally stock them and this pesto is fabulous without them! cooking time includes roasting the garlic

      So easy to make this delicious pesto, & the only thing not in the recipe was the lemon pepper that I used to season it slightly! Many thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

      I had extremely prolific basil this year so this is my third batch of pesto (and I could easily make one more! LOL) I could only find elephant garlic for some reason so it took about 15 minutes more to roast to perfection but that was the only real change I had to make. Since I had so much garlic I also used closer to the larger amounts of everything. I did add a little salt and pepper but otherwise found this perfect. Thanks for sharing!

      I don't believe I've ever made pesto without some type of nut included in the recipe. This is really good stuff. Roasting the garlic gives a very mellow flavor to the pesto. This was used as a pizza base along with leftover Caponata. Thanks for this new pesto recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
