"I made two batches of this pesto, it was *fabulous*! I had more than enough for two pizzas, plus enough to toss with pasta for days to come! It was very simple, but flavorful and delicious. It took more time removing the stems and washing the leaves of the basil than it actually did preparing the sauce itself. Highly recommended! "
