Easy Pesto
March 01, 2006

I tried halving this recipe and ran into difficulties. In particular, with half the material, after the initial blender pulse, all the material -much more compact- now could lay beneath the blades. Additional blending didn't do anything. I had to manually raise of the material and try to blender again, but this achieved little because it quickly went below the blades again, and in the end I was left with pesto with many practically unchopped garlic and nuts. This is posted here as an unrated review to warn others that before reducing the size of the recipe, think about the size, shape, and abilities of your food processor/blender. (With more material, I think that the convection in my blender would chop everything without difficulty.)
