This Pesto basil recipe is very easy to make and you only need 5 ingredients. It is definitely a good alternative for a store-bought product. This tastes beyond better than any processed pesto you can buy. Why? Because it is so fresh and full of fragrance. Another thing that I really like about this recipe is that you can control exactly how runny or thick you want your pesto to be. What you need to do is just to add more olive oil until you get the desired consistency you prefer.
