Merriam Webster says that Pesto is a sauce made especially of fresh basil, garlic, oil, pine nuts, and grated cheese. I say Pesto is a sauce that could be made from those things, but might just as easily be made from...3/4 container of cottage cheese, one bunch of organic watercress, 1/4 cup organic, extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil from your kitchen garden, 4 cloves of minced garlic, and some raw sunflower seeds. All bound together in the food processor. Spicy, peppery, garlic infused, MMMM.
Place on some crusts of toasted rustica bread with some sliced red onion and fresh garden tomatoes, and you have a perfect summer meal. For those sensitive to gluten, you might substitute the bread for a gluten-free variety.
