Basil and Coriander Pesto Sauce- Homemade

Last Updated on

Pesto Italia is a sauce originating in Genoa in the Liguria region of northern Italy (pesto alla genovese), and traditionally consists of crushed
garlic, basil, and European pine
nuts blended with olive oil, Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan cheese). But I made quick
and easy version with combination of basil and coriander with blanched almonds
instead of pine nuts. I made quick sandwich with this pesto sauce, tomato
slices and slice of cheese. Love the nutty and basil flavor in this spread
which can be store for more than one month in freeze.
