Italians have long used walnuts for pesto; they lend a rich earthiness to the sauce. This pesto is perfect as a pasta sauce and a bruschetta topping.
Italy's other ubiquitous green sauce is flavored with parsley and thickened with bread crumbs. Seasoned with vinegar and anchovies, it's bold enough to stand up to grilled meats.
The rich flavor of pistachio is balanced with lemon zest in this bright-tasting sauce. Pistachio pesto is rather sweet, making it great with roasted vegetables.
This peppery pesto is fantastic drizzled over steamed artichokes, grilled fish, or ripe tomatoes.
This versatile sauce takes its fresh flavor from basil and its earthy bite from olive oil and garlic.
This simple concoction makes a flavorful substitute for plain old grated parmesan.
