This pesto can be used with a variety of things such as bread, pizza, pasta. The deliciousness of this homemade sauce doesn't compare to store-bought.
I started making this recipe to use up the large amount of basil that I picked from my garden! It was more delicious than any store bought sauce. So from then on I've always made pesto.
Pine nuts are surprisingly expensive! When I tried making it with walnuts, I realized that they totally work just as well If you're interested in the difference, why not try both versions?
