Directions

I was surprised that my food processor could handle half a recipe of this, but it did! I had to scrape it from the sides a little, but it made it easily! My basil was almost at its end-of-the-season yellow, but it still worked! This is delicious! I will definitely make this again! It was perfect with Pulled Pork Pesto Sandwich from this site.

I'm not sure what to think of this. Normally I love garlic and spicy but with just 8 basil leaves (I actually used 10 of the biggest I could find on my plants) this is really, really garlicky and the whole teaspoon of red pepper flakes makes it mighty spicy. To me this is more of a flavored oil than a spread. I made mine in the blender and it is thin. I toasted some sourdough bread, poured a bit of this on and topped with Parmesan. It's ok, but I won't be making it again.

I didn't have a food processor on hand and didn't need a lot of this so I just used a knife. It came out very good.
