I'm not sure what to think of this. Normally I love garlic and spicy but with just 8 basil leaves (I actually used 10 of the biggest I could find on my plants) this is really, really garlicky and the whole teaspoon of red pepper flakes makes it mighty spicy. To me this is more of a flavored oil than a spread. I made mine in the blender and it is thin. I toasted some sourdough bread, poured a bit of this on and topped with Parmesan. It's ok, but I won't be making it again.

Great easy to make sandwich spread. The volume of this recipe didn't work in my food processor, just wasn't enough of it, but my mortar and pestle made fast work of it.

I didn't have a food processor on hand and didn't need a lot of this so I just used a knife. It came out very good.

I was surprised that my food processor could handle half a recipe of this, but it did! I had to scrape it from the sides a little, but it made it easily! My basil was almost at its end-of-the-season yellow, but it still worked! This is delicious! I will definitely make this again! It was perfect with Pulled Pork Pesto Sandwich from this site.
