I think the balance of ingredients in pesto is dependent on taste. It can be handy to have a basic guide before altering it to suit yourself though. This is what I use, and I love it, sometimes I heap the tablespoons of pine nuts, depending on my mood. Aussie tablespoons are 20ml rather than 15ml. Also yummo on potato gnocchi, lamb and grilled eggplant. Any unused pesto can be stored in the fridge with a layer of oil covering. Thanks to Stephanie Alexander.
