Joy's Pesto


Pesto for a crowd.



  1. In a food processor fitted with a sharp blade, mince the garlic cloves.
  2. Add the next four ingredients and grind to desired consistency (I prefer mine with some texture - it hangs better and looks prettier on the pasta).
  3. Add cheese and blend quickly. Place in the bottom of the pasta serving bowl.
  4. Add the hot cooked pasta, toss, and serve IMMEDIATELY with additional grated cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

Makes approximately two cups of pesto or enough for 2 pounds of pasta.

* For a milder flavor, use half Romano and half parmesan. Just make sure it's freshly grated.

Hint: Your food processor is all set up for this recipe. Grate a wedge. If you're still using the Kraft shake bottle, go to your room!
