Tamra's Lemon Artichoke Pesto
TOO MUCH GARLIC!
I was making this event for a pot luck. I doubled the recipe, but when doing this I decided 16 cloves of garlic was too much. I cut it down to 10 (equivalent of 5 in the original recipe). This was still WAY TOO MUCH garlic. I had to heat the sauce a little, add more of all of the other ingredients to make this edible: I didn't want to be the one responsible for ruining everyone's breath at the pot luck.
Other notes: You can use canned artichoke hearts, they're just as good, cheaper, easier to find, and less work.
After remedying this recipe by cutting back on the garlic, this is awesome. When I make this recipe again, I'd use 3-4 cloves of garlic max. This recipe has excellent flavor, and it's an excellent budget pesto.
