  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender in the order listed and blend until desired consistency is reached. For a chunkier pesto, blend or pulse on a low speed for a short period. And for a thinner, creamier pesto, blend or pulse on a higher speed for a longer period of time.
  2. Store unused pesto in the refrigerator for about 3 days. Sauce will thicken as it stands.
