Basic Pesto Sauce Recipe
 
Here's a basic Italian recipe that you can use for many dishes! The basic pestosauce is a classic sauce used in much of Italian cooking.
For years many Italians felt strongly that this sauce should be made by hand, with a pestle and mortar. If you use a food processor you will get the same results. The sauce is served with different types of pasta,as a flavoring for soups, and on a fresh Mozzarella and tomato salad.

How to Make Pesto like an ItalianGrandmother
6.
 
One key to perfect pesto is chopping all the ingredients by hand, preferably with a sharp mezzaluna or knife
.
I gave my double-bladed mezzaluna to a friend last year because it was collecting dust (I also didn't like how ingredients would get stuck between the blades), but have a large half-moon shaped pizza cutter that works like a dream
.
Francesca'smom even approved and said it cut her chopping time in half 
.
This pesto will keep a bit in the refrigerator, but it really hits its peak when served soon after it is made
