This is a very easy and delicious pesto recipe. I used it in orzo as a side dish and used the leftovers with a little olive oil drizzled over the top and pine nuts as a spread on italian bread.

I panicked tonight when I couldn't find this recipe which I had torn from the June '11 issue of Southern Living. My son was coming for a visit and he loves it on all sandwiches--and I always send it home with him. Not to mention how wonderful it is on pasta and caprese! Thank goodness for southernliving.com.

This is a delicious pesto! I used less salt the second time I made it. Also, I used almonds instead of pine nuts and a little lighter on the garlic. Great results!!!

Very easy to make with easy ingredients. Unfortunately, the cheese took over the entire taste, and even though I used only a 1/4 tsp of salt, it was still way too salty. I will try next time with 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and no salt at all.

My first time making pesto and it was a success! I omitted the salt altogether and found it to be fine; the cheese gives it plenty of salt. I also used minced garlic from a jar for convenience. The pesto is a bright green but needs to be covered with olive oil to prevent discoloration if it is not used immediately.

Love this recipe. I always make extra and freeze in ice cube trays then store the cubes in a freezer bag in the freezer to enjoy all winter long.

This was delicious! Went a bit lighter on the cheese and used walnuts. Great!
