Ingredients for 1 1/2 cups of sauce:
From your garden:
4 cups (or more) chopped fresh “common” (not “garlic”) chives
From your kitchen:
2 oz. slivered almonds or walnuts
1 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1/4 cup (or more) olive oil
Toss the chives, almonds, cheese, and garlic into the work bowl of your food processor. Pulse until all ingredients are finely-chopped. Then, with the machine running, add olive oil to desired consistency. One 1/4 cup oil with give you a spread-able pesto; add more oil to produce a pourable sauce for pasta.
Serve on crackers, on slices of toasted baguette, on cod or another white fish, or toss with pasta.
Spread some pesto onto slices of tomatoes. Broil 6 minutes, checking every few minutes.
