    I use this pesto recipe every summer with my fresh basil. It freezes well.

    A great light pesto recipe! Not oily at all, just a smooth light consistency. I actually didn't add the additional salt, and used 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, and the saltiness was enough for me. i also doubled the walnuts and toasted them before. great recipe!

    I always double the recipe and use any nut I have around. It's so much less fattening than any other pesto recipe. A real keeper.

    Super easy to make. Skipped the garlic and it still tasted great.
