Basil Pesto p.144

I have received an A+ in basil growing this summer! This was my first major harvest and I suspect I will get several more. Anyone need basil??

I followed the recipe except for using 4 cups of basil instead of 3 - I had a LOT of fresh basil I needed to use up. I was able to make 4 batches and froze 3 of them for future use.

I didn't have new potatoes so didn't try her Pesto Potato Salad (but will another time). Just tossed the pesto with pasta and we thoroughly enjoyed!! Can't wait to have my frozen pesto this winter!

My your basil looks so much healthier than mine! How much sun is yours getting? I think mine might need more sun.

Mine gets lots and lots of full sun and has been going crazy - my best year ever for basil!
