Pesto Sauce
June 11, 2008

This is delicious!!! When I buy a bunch of fresh basil, and use the whole thing, my proportions are: 2 cups basil leaves, 3/4 cup parmesan (freshly grated is worth every bit of effort), 3/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup pine nuts, 3 garlic cloves (I use the fresh in the jar kind), pepper and salt to taste. My friends, who are chefs, make their pesto about like this, as well as this amazing flat fry bread to dip in the pesto, which is the tastiest thing I've ever had! They use fresh ground flax seed (using a coffee grinder) in the dough. If I get the recipe, I'll share! By the way, this pesto goes great with salmon, even for non fish lovers. I always say this pesto is so good it would make an old shoe test great!!!
