I'm making a batch of pesto. Some fresh for dinner and the rest for the freezer. I use pesto on everything. From pizza to pasta to eggs. One of my absolute favorite things to do, is to heat up a flour tortilla in a cast iron pan on the stove top. Then spread pesto on it. YUM!!! A perfect snack.
Pesto is just the easiest thing in the world to make if you have a Cuisinart or Moulinex. Homemade is really the only way to go. You can adjust the ratios of ingredients to your personal taste.
I like my pesto with tons of garlic, Parmesan and pine nuts and a real decent amount of oil. Taste test yours to perfection. The Parmesan is salty enough, so no need to add salt.
Get good pine nuts too. You don't want a bitter taste to your pesto.
I used garlic from my garden.

I kept some out for dinner. (Pasta tonight.) And froze the rest.
I'll pop these out of the ice cube tray and keep them in Ziplocks.
