During the summer months when basil is so plentiful, pesto is made fresh to enjoy or frozen for the upcoming winter months. Originating from Liguria, Italy, this versatile sauce may be added to pastas, vegetables, soups, or used as a spread.
Add to a blender and pulsate, mixing until pesto is a smooth consistency.
Mix in food processor until dough pulls from bowl. Take out and knead by hand. Roll out. Cut into wide ribbons.
