I love pesto. Basil pesto especially. But I have not made it since I was little, helping my mom. She used to buy full rounds of parmesan cheese and the first step in the annual pesto process was grating it all. My sisters and I liked to chew on the hard edges - do we sound a little savage? we possibly were - and we called it "gnaw cheese". Good memories.
So I made my first two solo batches last week and yum! Better than store bought and super simple with the handy dandy cuisinart! I had pesto sandwiches and pesto with pasta and some pesto just licked off a spoon... And the rest I froze in an ice cube tray for instant dinner gratification in the months ahead.
