Watercress No Nut or Cheese, Pesto

20 mins (prep 20)
6 ingredients
2 servings
This is wonderful as a coating for a filet of beef or use on a hamburger (I will post a recipe for Pesto Burgers under a separate cover). Try a bit of this with pasta. This recipe is from "Meat Lovers Cookbook" by Sarlin & Porter The recipe is exactly as posted in the cookbook but I find that I can cut the oil back to half and it is still quite fluid.
