Quick Pesto Sauce

My first encounter with pesto sauce was in an ill-concocted pasta, where the pesto was mixed with some much cheese that it lost all freshness and I ended up shying away from it for years to come. Recently, I came across the freshest, freshest pesto sauces and finally motivated me to whip one up. Best part, this quick pesto sauce gets done under 10 minutes!
