  • Traditional basil pesto

    • anightowl on October 31, 2016

      This is a great basic basil pesto recipe, BUT I would recommend NOT adding all of the cheese suggested until you taste it. I made this recipe using a different brand and finer shred of Parmesan than I usually do, and this time the pesto came out very heavy, and the only thing I could taste was cheese. I was able to fix it by doubling the basil, adding 50% more pine nuts and a bit of garlic, but next time I will add half the suggested cheese, blend and taste before I add more.
