    First time making pesto and it’s super easy. Good recipe, but I’m a first timer so not sure how to really make good pesto. Also I used a blender so consistency was very liquid. Certainly not mad at it.

    Super easy and tasty! I used almonds in place of pinenuts as it's what I had on hand and doubled the garlic cause I LOVE garlic.

    Turned out great and I'll certainly make it again and regularly. Just watch it on the garlic as it easily becomes overpowering.
