Pesto at Restaurants-- Just about all add Cream!!!

lemarais | May 15, 2013 02:29 PM

This is a wonderful dish from North Western Italy, Pesto. Basil, olive oil, and Pine nuts. Blended together for a coarse blend, not too pureed.

It's not that common an item in Ital-American restos here, but the ones that do have it invariably add cream! Why??!! This makes for a rather disgusting and gloppy mess, IMO. I would rather not have to go to Italy to get this prepared the correct way.

Anyhbody finding the same problem with Pesto?
