Summer Herb Pesto
September 07, 2009

Loved it! I too subbed because of what I had available. Used several types of basil, more parsley, and the spinach. I used half toasted pine nuts, half toasted sunflower seeds. I thought the oil amount was pretty spot on. With all my pestos I add a pinch of red pepper flake for some heat, and juice from half a lemon to help prevent oxidation and add a little freshness. If you are storing the pesto for a while, it also helps to float about a teaspoon of evoo on the surface to prevent discoloration. We had this over our grilled shrimp and some rigatoni pasta.
