Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Auntie Donna's Pesto - It's the Besto! I use on pasta, for pizza sauce, with fish and chicken.
Depending on the saltiness of the Parmesan cheese you may not need to add salt. I only use Parmesan that is freshly grated at an Italian specialty store and therefore donít need to add it.
