When I posted the recipe for Pollo San Francesco a while ago, several people asked me what pesto sauce was. For those of you that can't find it at the local grocer's, or would prefer to make your own, here's a recipe: (makes about 2 cups)
Place the basil in a food blender. Add the oil, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, and nuts. Blend until all are chopped very fine but not smooth.
Remove from the blender and stir in the grated cheese.
Use in soups and on pasta. Keeps for several days in the refrigerator.
