    My husband and I never had pesto. I made this recipe and it was awesome. I must say, it was better than eating at Olive Garden. Thanks Yummly, pesto will be a condiment staple in my refrigerator from now on.

    quick and easy plus my 3 year old loves to help to make this AND he eats it with no fuss!! I add half a cup of diced mushrooms to add some earthy tones to the dish.
