You can substitute mozzarella for Swiss cheese, and you can also cook it on the grill in stead of baking.

Fresh Basil Pesto Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • ⅔ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup freshly grated Romano cheese

Directions:
Combine the basil, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and blend until coarsely chopped.

Add ½ cup of olive oil and process until fully blended and smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

If you're serving it right away, then add all the remaining oil and blend until smooth. Pour the pesto into a large bowl and stir in the cheese.

If you intend to store pesto a few days, or if you want to freeze it, then put it into an air-tight container and drizzle remaining oil over the top.

If refrigerating, then add cheese before serving.

You can freeze pesto for up to 3 months. Just thaw it our, mix in cheese, and serve.

Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it). I also have Raynauld?s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms. I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses. Interesting.
