Parsley Pesto

I often buy a bag of fresh herbs for a particular dish, use a small amount and then end up throwing the rest away.  Not anymore!  You could adapt this recipe to use any or a mixture of your favourite fresh herbs and store little pots of delicious pesto in your freezer for quick mid-week pasta meals.
