Liked it VERY much!! I put a little TOO much garlic I think. Next time I will put one clove. I added two cloves, but they were rather large. Will make this again!

It was very thick. Not the best I've made.

I was looking to use a giant bunch of basil leaves and walnuts. This recipe came right up! I just adjusted the amount of the added ingredients because I had so much basil. I didn't overwhelm ...

My first time making pesto. This is delicious. I followed directions exactly as written. I toasted the walnuts in a skillet on stovetop. The heat brings the flavorful oil flavor out.

I used all basil from my garden and walnuts. This is great! Very easy and tastes terrific!

It was very thick. Not the best I've made.

will definitely make again. made as directed, added a little salt, just over 1/2 tsp, and a little extra chhese. delish!

was very Good ..my family enjoyed it very much Thank you

I've made a recipe like this before and liked it . This time I over processed it and it was bitter. Also used 1/2 the called for salt but it was very salty.highly recommend the walnut basil comb...

It was very thick. The flavor was good, but I would not use this on egg noodles again. It would be good as a sauce on my zucchini pizza or something similar.
