Basil Pesto à la Michael Chiarello

Basil Pesto à la Michael Chiarello

As I prepped for an extended vacation recently, I noticed quite a few perishable goodies in my kitchen that would go to waste. I could think of no better way to use that newly purchased basil plant (poor planning) than to make a batch of basil pesto. As far as Italian chefs go, I always know that Michael Chiarello won't lead me astray. So I grabbed the Tra Vigne Cookbook off my shelf.
