"Pesto is the quiche of the 80's." -Nora Ephron, Playwright

I think that most of the pesto that I am served is simply greasy. It almost always has too much olive oil and then the sauce separates. Good cooking is about a balance of flavors and not using fat or salt to hide the sins of poor recipes.
