Yes, this is very good pesto! I like the tangy flavor of the artichokes and the prominent lemon flavor of the pesto. I ran short of pine nuts, so I added a few walnuts to make 1/4 cup of nuts total. I made 16oz cooked fettuccine and only needed half of the pesto mixture to nicely coat the noodles. I saved the leftovers in a covered container for later. Olive oil was not noted in ingredients list - I used 1/4 cup and it seemed fine to me, although directions indicated to add 1/2 cup of olive oil. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
