Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's so easy! It's so easy! I have a cuisinart and it chopped everything and mixed it up very well! I did add 1/2 c toasted pine nuts, 1 clove garlic, and 1/4 c parsley, plus salt and pepper to taste. I love Italian dressing so the vinegar taste is new and different in this pesto compared to others I've made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I doubled this recipe and ended up with 1 1/2 ice cube trays of pesto.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The quickie version. The quickie version. i give it four stars cuz of the ease! Very quick staple for summer drop-ins! And save yourself a couple more steps in the freezing process: fill quart ziplocs, press pesto flat, zip n freeze. Then just break chunks off as needed for tossing with pasta, dropping into soup, stir fries, whatever! No fiddling around with ice cube trays necessary.

Pesto can be hard to find in an affordable and large container so this is absolutely perfect! Tastes great and I love the fact that I can keep it at the ready by storing it as cubes in the freezer.
