Aromatic and fresh basil leaves are blended with Parmesan, walnuts and cloves of fresh garlic. This pesto tastes great on pasta, with tomatoes or even as a dip.
Altered ingredient amounts. Mmm...this was very good. The recipe, as written, makes 2 cups. I used 3 cloves garlic instead of 4, and found it was plenty. A bit of lemon juice mixed in will help prevent browning, if you're freezing it. - 29 Sep 2008
The proportion of ingredients were perfect! And its a relief to know that the more affordable walnut can be used instead of the rather expensive pine nut without casualty. Thanks. - 29 Sep 2008
This was incredibly good! I arranged boneless chicken breasts in a 22x33cm dish. I coated each breast with the pesto and then layered sliced tomatos on top. Sprinkled on grated mozzarella and baked. So good! - 29 Sep 2008
