This summer we planted a couple basil plants, and I have been meaning to make pesto while the basil is still good this season. I used my trusty friend allrecipes.com for the recipe. I am not a huge pine nut fan, so I liked that this recipe uses walnuts instead. It is super easy and turned out great.
Here's what you need, plus a food processor.
It looks yucky, but it is really yummy! I think it just turns a little brown and loses some of its bright-greeness when exposed to air.
We took it over to our friends for dinner and it was a hit. We just tossed it with some whole wheat penne and grilled chicken. Yum!!
