    Title: Roasted Pistachio Pesto
    Categories: Herbs, Nuts, Citrus, Cheese
    Yield: 16 Tablespoon

    2 c (packed) fresh basil leaves
    2 cl Garlic
    1/4 c Roasted pistachios; more for
    - optional garnish
    2/3 c Olive oil; as needed
    1 tb Lemon juice
    1/2 c Pecorino-Romano cheese;
    - shredded

    ROASTED PISTACHIOS: Shell pistachios and set your oven @

    Spread the pistachios on a rimmed cookie sheet. They
    should be in a single layer for even roasting.

    Roast for 6 - 8 minutes, stirring halfway through, or
    until the pistachios are fragrant and lightly browned.

    PESTO: Place basil, garlic, and roasted pistachios into
    a food processor. Process until the mixture is smooth.
    You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the
    food processor. Once smooth (there will still be some
    small chunks), slowly pour in the olive oil, lemon
    juice, and pecorino romano cheese while the food
    processor is running.

    Process until the mixture is smooth, again, you may need
    to scrape down the sides of the food processor.

    Season with salt, and serve immediately over pasta,
    toasted bread, use it as pizza sauce, etc!

    UDD NOTES: If you use store-bought shelled and roasted
    pistacios as I do you can skip the first part of the
    directions. I have used Grana-Padano in place of the
    Pecorino-Romano - but be warned it is somewhat milder
    and alters the flavour profile subtly.
