This is absolutely one of our family favorites, however I will never use prepared pesto sauce again having made it from scratch. The pesto you buy in a jar at the grocery store tastes processed and there is a noticable difference when you use FRESH ingredients. The fun thing about pesto is that you can use various types of nuts, cheeses and herbs provided you are willing to use the food processor. For basic pesto - I use fresh basil, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, garlic, fresh pepper, pine nuts and olive oil. As you can see, it is simple to switch out any one of these ingredients (or add to it). For example, try walnuts instead of pinenuts or spinach instead of basil, other herbs, etc. Create your own master piece! I recently purchased my own basil plants because we use fresh basil in evertying from salads to sauces. Enjoy!!!
