My basil plant has gone crazy, so this was a welcome recipe to find! This is really great. I used coarse sea salt instead of regular. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT.

So delicious!! I had a bit of trouble blending to a paste in my black and decker small blender though. I actually left out the parmesan as I didn't have any. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plus the rest of the ingredients. I would make this again! Made for ZWT7 Italy, for my team Food.Commandos

Best pesto recipe ever! I only made a half batch because that's all the basil that was left in my garden. So simple to make and very flavorful. I love it on pasta with chicken, sauteed onions and mushrooms. Thanks!

A nice version of pesto! I halved the recipe and used fresh basil from the garden. I used on toast. Thanks Lainey! Made for Photo tag.

Almost too easy to make . . . and OH SO YUMMY! Had to reduce to 1/2 cup since 'something' (those pesky wabbits) started eating my basil. Did add an extra garlic to the mix! Thanks Lainey!
