Basil Sauce (a.k.a. Non-Deadly Pesto)

From Jessica Branom-Zwick


Cook together, serve over chicken (or wherever you’d like pesto)

I don’t eat pesto, because no matter how many times I read the ingredients, and no matter how often the cook insists it doesn’t include walnuts … it always does (in addition to those pesky not-quite-nut pine nuts). So I refuse to eat pesto. Jessie kindly refers to hers as “basil sauce” and cooked it from scratch in my own house so it was entirely safe and 100% nut free. I will never trust pesto.
