Tip

This makes about 2 1/2 cups of pesto. It freezes really well - I spoon mine into flexible muffin trays to freeze; and then pop them out and store them in the freezer in ziplock bags. To defrost, just microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir. Spread it on fish, stir through hot pasta, use it as a dressing on vegetables or top potatoes with it!

    Nice pesto. We appreciated that all the ingredients were listed in gms as it was much easier to work out the amount of basil to use Found it a bit difficult to measure in the olive oil while the machine was processing at speed 5 because the measure only works up to speed 4. i made a 1/3 batch and that was plenty. Thank you for the recipe
