Great recipe. I added garlic and little more cheese. I tried the blender method but transferred to the food processor for better results. This is the first thing I have found the Vitamix didn't work well!! This is a recipe to repeat.
I don't even LIKE pesto, and I liked this! I made it to use up a bumper crop of basil and the plan was just to gift it all to neighbors. Instead (sorry neighbors) most of it went in my freezer for safekeeping. YUM!
I love pesto but haven't made it in over 20 years because my husband has alway said he doesn't like it because it's too garlicky. Since we have an abundance of basil from our garden this year I wanted to try this recipe for myself. He LOVED it so much he went back for thirds! I used my food processor instead of the blender and a scant tsp of jarred minced garlic to make sure it was mild. Quick and delicious! I will DEFINITELY make it again.
