Goat Cheese Pesto

"Traditional pesto uses parmesan, which has a harder and more granular texture as compared to goat cheese. With only parmesan, pesto is more of a paste. Using goat cheese in pesto, instead creates a smoothie, creamier spread with a texture similar to a whipped dip. Goat Cheese Pesto is silky smooth and the cheese flavors come out a bit stronger, in the best way possible. The goat cheese, however, doesn’t completely mask the fresh basil and buttery pine nut flavors, but rather creates a good rich balance between the ingredients. Also, I am not a gardener, but if there is one thing anyone can grow, it's basil. I’m usually lazy and opt for the store bought package of basil, but I’m often disappointed by the spotty and unloved leaves. Buying a basil plant is WAY more economical, not to mention you get a fun plant in your house giving off fresh smells and fresh basil whenever you need it! This Goat Cheese Pesto alone, is a reason to purchase a basil plant in my opinion."
