mixed herb pesto

pesto alle erbette

makes 3/4 cup

Fresh, light, and aromatic, this pesto brings together six different herbs, a perfect recipe if you have an herb garden. Use it as you would a basil pesto.


Special equipment: a mortar and pestle


Finely grind almonds in a food processor. Combine almonds and oil in a mortar. Using the pestle with a rotary movement, grind half of the herbs against the wall of the mortar until combined. Add remaining herbs, cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper; continue to grind until smooth.
