That’s what Miss Petrie calls pesto. We got a giant haul of basil leaves from the garden and I made walnut pesto. I know it’s common practice to use pine nuts in pesto, but I’ve found that whatever nut I have on hand generally works fine (although I probably wouldn’t use peanuts).
I put small portions of pesto in these little dollar store containers and freeze them. With pesto, a little goes a long way. Those tiny containers will get dumped into pasta sauce, soup, beans, and salads.
I don’t use a recipe for pesto anymore, but when I first started making it, I used a Food Network recipe.
Good eating, friends.
