Pesto can also be made many different ways. Here are ways to switch up the ingredients:

Instead of basil, try one of these greens:

  • Cilantro
  • Arugala
  • Spinach

Instead of parmesano reggiano cheese, try a different hard cheese like:

  • Gruyere
  • Manchego
  • Gouda
  • Cheddar

Instead of pine nuts, I used almonds. You can also try

  • Peanuts
  • Cashews
  • Pistachios
  • Walnuts
  • Pecans
