Have any unusual pesto recipes? Here's mine.

I conjured up a delicious pesto this morning. Thought I'd share, and I hope you all contribute some interesting recipes too!

Lemony Basil Pesto

4oz package of basil, stems removed (yields about 4 cups of leaves)
zest of one lemon
juice of two lemons
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup walnut pieces
5 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Combine everything in the blender (my KitchenAid whirred this up in a snap, but if you run into trouble, push the ingredients down with a spatula between pulses until blended).

I know this blend-it-all-and-you're-done method is less than traditional. but so are the ingredients! Enjoy =).
