Personal Notes:
One day our friend Scotty showed up with a cold pasta salad that had been marinating in this fabulous pesto. Ever since it has been a hit at our house and in the summer we grow lots of basil. I use this sauce in my lasagne, on sandwiches, and sometimes, even behind my ears. It's THAT good!
