Walnut Pesto Recipe

- While pulsing, add the olive oil, very slowly, until the texture becomes smooth.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
Creative Ways to Use Walnut Pesto
Add a scoop to your soup: Stirring in a scoop of your walnut pesto after the soup has been taken off the heat and before serving will add a burst of flavor.
Take your sandwich to the next level: Spread walnut pesto on toasted baguette or regular sliced bread with mozzarella cheese and tomato, or shredded chicken breast and spinach. It will replace the moisture in the sandwich that might typically come from mayonnaise and should keep the sandwich together when you take a bite.
Toss with pasta: California walnut pesto adds flavor and texture to crushed herbs and warm pasta as a substitute for tomato sauce. Use pappardelle, linguini, spaghetti, tortellini, ravioli, penne, or your other favorites.
