|3 cups||Fresh basil leaves; lightly packed|
|⅔ cup||Crumbled Gorgonzola cheese; (about 6 ounces)|
|¼ cup||Olive oil|
|Salt and pepper; to taste|
In a blender or food processor, whirl basil, cheese and oil until pureed.
Transfer to a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
If made ahead, cover and refrigerate until the next day. Serve at room temperature. Makes about ¾ cup.
Assertive pesto becomes even bolder when teamed with Gorgonzola. Serve this zesty appetizer surrounded by radicchio leaves and zucchini spears. |=| >From "Appetizers" by the Editors of Sunset Books and Sunset Magazine (Lane Publishing Company, Menlo Park, CA, 1990) Recipe by: Appetizers by the Editors of Sunset Posted to Recipelu Digest1769 by "Crane C.
