Test Kitchen Tip

Toast whole walnuts in a 350° preheated oven until they smell toasty and are golden in color, about 10 minutes, then chop them.


Pulse parsley, basil, walnuts, Parmesan, shallots, garlic, zest, and lemon juice in a food processor until chunky. With machine running, drizzle in oil; process until smooth. Season pesto with salt and pepper.
