Fresh Basil -- Pesto

walker | Jul 10, 201602:51 PM

I got carried away at the farmer's market and got 3 big bunches of beautiful basil. I love Marcella Hazan's recipe for pesto so decided to invite friends (10 adults/kids mixture) over Tuesday for Linguini with Pesto.

I have bad luck keeping basil. Should I just make the pesto today or tomorrow and keep it in the fridge?

Has anyone frozen pesto? I think I heard you should freeze it without the parm, add the cheese the day you serve it.
