My lovely cousin Carol sent me home from her house in Tampa with the most delicious pesto. We made it last as long as possible, and then I decided to make my own version of hers. I think I did a passable job! It is different, but still delicious! We love it on pizza with mushrooms and onions or pasta! I added a little lemon juice to keep the color bright. I also have been told that parsley does the same thing, so I added some of that too.
