Depending on how much pine nuts are in your area, it might actually be cheaper to buy your pesto sauce but what fun is that? In any case, I will leave it up to you which one is cheaper if costs are important to you.
The only kitchen tool you need to pull this recipe off is some kind of food processor or immersion blender to puree all the ingredients together.
But where does Pesto come from anyways? I was wondering the same thing so I decided to look it up. This article explains it best.
