Gotta love Pesto with Almonds. I believe it’s traditionally made with Pine Nuts but even Walnuts are often substituted. So it doesn’t really matter what you use, just pick your favorite and follow this recipe to a T because it is fantastic. Just know that I cut this recipe in half when I filmed it in the video.
Also, if you’re looking for something meaty to compliment this recipe, be sure to check out my Italian Sausage and my Italian Breaded Pork Chops!
