Cilantro Pesto

Here's a recipe that I used this week to make use of my cilantro. It's one I had back in North Carolina that reminded me of South Texas.

Cilantro Pesto
1 cup fresh cilantro
1 cup fresh italian parsley
1/3 cup walnuts
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves (or to taste, depending on your sensitivity to spice)
1/4 cup olive oil

Combine first five ingredients in food processor, and pulse to process, all along slowly drizzling in the olive oil.

Ideas for Use:
Toss with pasta
Spread on sandwiches, or baguettes
Use on Pesto Chicken Pizzas (recipe to follow)
