Pesto Sauce
July 10, 2007

This recipe was quite good. I absolutely love garlic, but I found 4 raw cloves to be a bit much, and I was surprised. Maybe next time I'll use 2-3. I used toasted pine nuts instead of walnuts. Expensive but worth it. I also added fresh parmesan and the juice of 1/2 a lemon. I'll definitely make this again. I was concerned about the fat and calorie content as listed on the recipe, but when I made this I came out with around 2 cups of pesto. The recipe says 4 servings, but this pesto is extremely rich. On a smaller-sized bowl of pasta I used like 2 spoonfuls of the sauce - not 1/2 cup - so I doubt I consumed anywhere near the fat and calorie content that was listed.
