Last weekend I harvested some basil from the garden and made up some pesto. I didn't have any pine nuts, so I used walnuts from our tree. My mom has a cow's milk allergy, so no Parmesan either. The end result was a pretty strong, and slightly bitter to my taste, walnutty pesto, and I was a little dubious as I put it into the refrigerator.
However, after a week of the flavors settling, I took it out and used it on a pizza, and it was great! The cheese is goat cheddar from Trader Joe's. The miniature tomatoes are from the garden. Isn't summer delightful?
Yes, I used a store bought crust, and I regret nothing. NOTHING.
