We all love this pesto! Your gnocchi recipe which contains this pesto is divine. We also love to eat this pesto spread on a baguette! So good.
You can never go wrong with pesto - so glad you like it 🙂
Wonderful recipe. Just in time to use some of my end of summer basil bounty! I lightened up on the oil, but just so that I could add some pistachios. Otherwise I followed your instructions and was pleasantly surprised. Can't wait to try it with garden grown fingerling potatoes!
Do I add all of the oil from the sun dried tomatoes jar into it or leave that out?
Yep! This will keep you from having to add any additional oil.

I can no longer eat garlic which makes al ot of recipes difficult. I can safley digest garlic infused oil; could I put some of that in for the flavor?
Can this pesto sauce be frozen?
Sure! Just throw it into a freezer-safe container.
This was probably the tastiest thing in the world. Definitely my new favourite form of pesto.
Mine turned out tasting too much like lemon. Bitter...
