Classic Pesto is just that, a classic. It’s hard to mess with because it’s great just as it is. Simple everyday ingredients that become a vibrant, garlicky and herbaceous sauce with just a few pulses in the food processor.

Author's Notes

Romano is a little stronger and saltier than parmesan and a nice addition, however you can use all parmesan if desired. You can also use a blender or mortar and pestle instead of a food processor. Makes 1 cup.
