Pesto is one of my favorite sauces. The traditional nut used in pesto is pine nuts. Here's a Louisiana twist on this Italian dish
1 1/2 cups fresh basil
3 tablespoons garlic, chopped
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oIl
Place all ingredients in a blended and blend into a paste. Store in refrigerator in a sealed container for a week.
