    Tisme's Note:

    I got this recipe from a bag of Lucky nuts. Spaghetti or fettuccine pasta is best. Reserved pasta water can be substituted for cream if prefered.

      Wow, so good!!! I love peas and really liked the idea of pea pesto, I made it with basil since I have lots in the garden, but would certainly enjoy trying it with mint as well, such a good combo, peas and mint. I kept the pesto a little bit chunky instead of completely smooth.I also used the cream, despite my spreading waistline, lol! This was really good.. sorry the photo is so GREEN, lol, what can I say, it's a green dish...:D Loved it Tisme, thank you!!!! Made for P-A-R-T-Y! tag!

      I made this for the Nov 2009 Aussie/Kiwi Swap. Creamy, tasty, crunchy, garlicky - GOOD! This was so easy to make and so scrumptious! I used the basil from my summer garden, and used cream. I even had seconds - which I don't normally do. And my DH loved it.
