This distinctively flavored pesto is a great dressing for spaghetti or any pasta. It’s a great condiment too; put a spoonful on fish or chicken hot off the grill for a real treat.  It’s also delicious to add a dollop on to hot Minestrone soup.

Traditionally, pesto is made with pine nuts.  “BrowneyedBaker” substitutes walnuts for the pine nuts which can be quite costly.  The walnuts are still traditional in pesto recipes throughout Italy.    Make extra pesto when basil and parsley are plentiful in summer, and freeze it in small containers to use through the winter.
