* I like my pesto thick, so I only used 7 Tbsp olive oil. Feel free to adjust the consistency as you want it.
** You will only use about 1/2 of the pesto for this recipe but, unless you have the worlds smallest food processor, it just doesn't work to make a smaller batch. The pesto keeps great in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Spread it on sandwiches, meats or pasta! YUM. :)
