Basil Garlic Parmesan Sauce

Normally you'll need pine nuts or some nut alternative for pesto but I don't have any on hand. I omit the nuts and it still tastes as good.

At some point in the last ten years, I discovered and fell in love with basil. I like the Greek and Italian versions but my favorite is the purple Thai basil.

I made pesto recently, similar to your sauce but I added pumpkin seeds and some apple cider vinegar. It's great as a dip or even a salad dressing.

I have a couple types of basils currently growing. Lime basil, Thai basil, and purple basil, sweet basil. :) My favorite is the sweet basil and lime basil.

I've never tried lime basil. I'll have to look for that one. :)
