Alonti’s Pecan Pesto has been a favorite of mine for a long, long time. Pesto is a wonderful sauce to make for pasta or even to serve with a grilled meat. One of the major drawbacks for pesto is the expense of the pine nuts Alonti’s has been making their pesto with pecans instead of pine nuts, and it is quite frankly incredible.
As the summer begins to wind down, I am enjoying the last of my basil plants for this summer. Every year I grow a couple of basil plants and the weather is just beginning to cool off, and I know that my personally harvested basil is coming to a close. During the summer I often make salad caprese, and pesto. I think the 20 dollar a bag pine nuts at Costco made me whence too much, and made me think of Alonti’s. I honestly eat there about once a week. One of my favorite items there is their pesto made with pecans.
