haw to make red pepper pesto sauce recipe

Pesto is traditionally known as the basil-pinenut concoction we stir into cooked pasta. However the concept can be applied liberally to a variety or herb or vegetable, and a variety of nuts. Its uses are multiple as well. This is a roasted red pepper pesto made with cashews.
My favorite use for this is with grilled meats, but honestly it is just as good used as a dip or spread over some bread. The best part is you don't need to peel the blistered capsicums as the char adds to the flavor.
