Presto — Pesto!

I love pesto so I grow basil.  It can’t grow fast enough!

Here’s my favorite pesto recipe:

I also like to take pictures, so here are a few:


I found this recipe in the St. Pete Times, back before it turned into the Tampa Bay Times.  I changed a few things.  Like they called for pine nuts.  Those things are incredibly expensive.  Or maybe it’s just because we live in far, far away and they have to charge us extra.  But I like it with the walnuts.  Especially toasted.  I always toast walnuts before I use them in any recipe.
