I may have decided on Nathaniel's Special Sauce, but there is still sauce to be made!
Our garden has expanded exponentially this year, and with that comes an abundance of basil. To keep it growing healthy, it must be picked before it decides to turn to seed. One of the best uses I know for basil is pesto, and I turned to Alice Waters in The Art of Simple Food, because her recipes have never steered me wrong. It was delicious - simple and fresh - although I made it in the food processor since I didn't have a mortar and pestle.
