  5. Thx Renee, Definitely! Got yummy leftovers! Thanks Alison and Soma. Key for me was finding the right mild olive oil and excercise restraint with garlic and not to add anchovies. Also it came out very authentic without pine nuts. Allergies.
    I slather it on salmon too and bake in oven for 20 minutes for a quick, delicious meal. So easy to whip a quick pesto.

  15. Thanks S and Renee. An you are always welcome, just a small matter of an airline ticket from Indian, lol. To follow up on our twitter conversation although this version of the pesto, flavor wise, is right on, optionally you can add & ground pine nuts in the mix. We don't, due to nut allergies.
