This was my first attempt at pesto - very easy! This was so good - I made homemade pizza and used it as the sauce, put on mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and fresh tomatoes - yum! Thanks for sharing!

This is my "go to" pesto recipe. I love that it does NOT have pine nuts (keeps the cost down). So tasty!
