Description

If you grow your own basil, you'll want to commit this pesto recipe to memory, as it puts your crop to delicious use. This recipe calls for peanuts in place of more traditional pine nuts or walnuts, either of which could be substituted, and for tossing the pesto with cooked spaghetti, but the pesto is also excellent as a topping for crostini, a sandwich spread, stirred into risotto, or thinned with a bit of water and used as a salad dressing.
