  1. Place walnuts, pine nuts, salt, pepper, garlic, butter, basil, and parsley in to a blender or food processor. Turn the blender on, and add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream. Continue processing until a soft paste has formed. Fold in Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Store in the refrigerator covered by 1/4 inch of olive oil to prevent the surface from turning brown.

The olive oil amount should be cut down a bit, and don't add the butter. Butter isn't used in pesto recipes. It's usually nuts (pine or walnut), garlic, oil, basil, paremsan cheese. Salt and pep...

I cut the olive oil down to 1/4 cup and it came out great! Very tasty!

This really is the best pesto ever. I made it to go with pasta for a dinner party and made too much. The next night we ate it on burgers with melted mozzarella cheese and baby greens. They were ...

Wonderful. I will make this again and again. I toasted the pine nuts before adding them. Besides that I didn't change a thing. I put it into individual containers so I could freeze it and have i...
