This recipe was created with flexibility in mind, and is a great way to use up leftover ingredients. Adjust the quantity of the ingredients depending on what you have, the flavors you like, and the number you're serving. This photo shows three variations of ingredients: cilantro and almonds; parsley, walnut, and Parmesan cheese; and basil, pine nut, and Parmesan cheese.Body+Soul, January/February 2010 http://www.marthastewart.com/132523/pesto
To store leftover pesto, place in an ice cube tray and pop in the freezer. When ready to eat, let the cubes defrost naturally -- not in the microwave.
