      Basil Pesto Recipe : Food Network Kitchen : Food Network - Modifications I made: 1/2 cup oil, added Spinach, added toasted almonds (no pine nuts)... GOOD stuff.

      Basil Pesto recipe from Food Network Kitchen. I've been making this for years. My favorite pesto recipe! Tastes best with pine nuts.

      Basil Pesto Recipe : Food Network Kitchen [My take: I'm pretty sure this is the recipe Mike used in that pesto he made. It was great. We froze it for awhile and it froze really well. Next time we would use a substitute for pine nuts - i've heard walnuts work just as well - because they are mega expensive]
