The beauty of pesto is, after hundreds of years, there is still no definitive recipe. It’s all about personal preference; chopping, changing, tasting and seasoning as you go along. Bearing this in mind, this recipe is subject to tweaking as you please – be sure to share what you did differently and how it worked out!
