    Here's a different take on pesto - walnuts instead of pine nuts, and rocket to give it a spicy, peppery taste. Delicious!

    This is an authentic Genovese pesto and you won't find a tastier recipe! It will keep a month in the fridge, covered in a thin layer of oil. Watch it being made in the Allrecipes Pesto video.

    If you grow your own basil this is a great use for the big plants when summer is ending. This pesto can be made in big batches and frozen for months.

    This is a recipe for a traditional pesto made with basil, olive oil, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese. Try it on toasted sliced baguette, tossed through pasta or used as a quick topping for barbecued chicken, lamb or salmon.

    A spicy chicken and pesto pasta dish that's easy to make more or less spicy depending on who is eating it. It is one of my favorites. Serve with additional grated Parmesan, if desired.
