Nichole's Garlicky Pesto

My roommate, Nichole, recently made a delicious and very garlicky pesto spread. Delicious with steak, on crackers and certainly far superior to any store bought pesto. I'd love to have this on angel pasta with shrimp and cheese. Nichole's pesto is loosely based on this pesto recipe - with significant substitutions due to ingredient availabilities. Because this pesto has a rather strong garlic under tone, I recommend eating it with a light whipped cheese, sweet tomato slices, avocado or tangerine. I think the pesto was perfect however Nichole did say that if she makes this again, she would add a dash of fresh lemon juice.
