Food Facts

Pesto is an uncooked sauce made with fresh basil, garlic, pignoli (pine nuts), Parmesan or Pecorino cheese and olive oil. This classic, fresh-tasting sauce originated in Italy and is a favorite on pasta and chicken dishes. Look for prepared pesto in either the refrigerated aisle of your supermarket, with the sauces and dressings in the produce aisle or with the jarred pasta sauces in the grocery aisle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was easy to make and follow. This was easy to make and follow. I wish that I had known that the sauce was supposed to be watery. I thought I ruined it somehow, but once you add the pasta the sauce is soaked into the pasta and it was perfect! LOL. Should've watched the video, right? When I make this the next time, I will follow some of the suggestions from other reviewers to give the sauce some kick. It was a little bland, but that's ok, you can always add more seasoning after you've tasted it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I doubled this recipe to make enough for 8 people and it was a huge hit. I doubled this recipe to make enough for 8 people and it was a huge hit. I read other people's reviews before I made it and took the suggestion to add garlic to it for flavor. I will say that when i doubled it, it ended up being a bit too much milk and making the sauce very thin, so I added a little flour to thicken it up. Other than that, it was great and fairly easy to make (coming from someone who basically never cooks)
