Besides pesto with basil, what other herbs or whatnot have you used to make a similar type mix?

We love pesto, I try to always have some on hand as I like to add a spoonful to just about anything. Such a great flavor! But despite planting two packets of two different type basils this spring, nothing came up! What a disappointment. I think the blue jays ate all the seeds, it was Burpee so I don't think it was me. Meanwhile, back to buying fresh basil at the store. So sad.

But the rest of my herb garden is doing fine. I have three kinds of mint (banana, pineapple and chocolate) and am thinking of doing something with that. I have lemon balm, lemon verbena and lemon thyme (can you tell I love lemon flavor?) I've seen arrugala, cilantro and parsley "pesto" at the farmstands. Any tried and true ideas? It freezes so well, I'd love to stock up while summer is in full swing.
