    Tisme's Note:

    My family loves Basil, and I found this recipe, when I was looking to use an abundance of basil. If you like Basil Pesto, you will like this.

      Tasted great, esp. with lots of cheese! I added chicken tenderloins that I marinated in a sundried tomato hummus, which added additional flavor. It also makes a great sauce for a cold pasta salad using penne pasta. Tip: use a food processor, not a blender, to make the sauce. It gets stuck in the blender blades and is really tough to get out.

      Pasta-quick and easy. The pesto sauce had great flavour combination and a really good texture. Much cheaper than a bought pesto sauce and so much tastier too. The almonds and walnuts were a good combination with the parsley and basil. My youngest daughter loved having "green sgetti". I used gluten-free spaghetti to make this meal gluten-free suitable. Thanks for another great recipe Tisme :)
