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.

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.

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.
