Made pesto this evening.
Love. love. love pesto.
Love making pesto pizza, pesto chicken, pesto pasta… oh, we love pesto.
My only wish is that I had a bigger Cuisinart. But this one does just fine, just small batches.
Also, a little tip I learned… don’t waste your precious money on pine nuts. Yes, they are delicious, but since they are so pricey I substitute walnuts and nobody even notices. Yum.
I love pesto too. And always use walnuts. Does anyone even buy pine nuts?
One thing I did with all my many batches of pesto made over the summer was to freeze the pesto in ice cube trays, so I can pull out just what I need, say for pizza. Works great! I have also frozen regular red sauce for pizza,in the same way, so on pizza night we can have a pesto pizza and a “regular” tomato sauce pizza. I LOVE pesto, and its really so simple to make.
We make ours with hazelnuts. Yum! I freeze it in small babyhood jars.
