- In the share today is pesto made simply with basil and sunflower oil. We chose not to add other ingredients so that people could make the pesto that suits their personal taste best. We did try a bunch of different recipes though and had fun doing it. You could use some local aged cheese (try some old blue for a zesty pesto!) or go with something more classic. You could skip cheese altogether and try some nuts and lots of garlic.

To make a fairly simple pesto add the following to your 1/2 pint
1 clove minced or crushed garlic(or 2-3 depending on taste)
3 TB grated parmesan
2-3 TB pine nuts, lightly toasted
1/8 - 1/4 tsp salt
