I'd probably eat the entire batch over the course of a day and a couple bottles of wine then spend a week hating myself for it.

Our basil plant is going buck wild so I'm thinking of trimming it and making pesto. Anyone have a pesto recipe that's more exciting than the standard basil + pine nuts + garlic + parmesan + olive oil combo?

You can use garlic scapes instead of bulb garlic, but I guess that's a) not too much different than regular pesto and b) you've got to catch the scapes in season (late spring so like June-ish +/- a month in the Northern Hemisphere depending on how warm your area is). Maybe something to keep in mind for later in the season, they'll often pop up at farmers markets for not too much since farmers typically remove the flowering stalks (the scapes) to help promote growth of the bulb in hard-neck garlic.

since you're trying to use basil I won't say replacing that with nettles or arugula but some things I like to try are replacing the pine nuts with almonds or pistachios or making it dairy free by replacing the parm with nutritional yeast, adding avocado, occasionally adding dried chilis or peppers to make it spicy

Add chilis, add cilantro/parsley, use walnuts or almonds, add fish sauce. Never thought to use nooch instead of parm but thatís a great idea.

The Silver Spoon is very comprehensive but doesnít really hold your hand. Itís the sort of resource that will last a lifetime but I wouldnít give it to someone whoís entirely new to cooking. Marcella Hazanís Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking is a lot more explanatory, it touches on technique a lot more. Talismano della Felicitŗ is good as well, but I havenít read the English translation (which is the Talisman Italian Cookbook).
