    Suzie-Q's Note:

    This delicious pistou is actually taken from a Provencal Vegetable Soup recipe by the Barefoot Contessa. The pistou is meant to be added to the soup just before serving. While a wonderful addition for the soup, it was hard to keep my DH from eating all the pistou on crusty Italian bread! Now it is requested on a regular basis and tastes great with bread, crackers, or even raw veggies. You can even toss it with hot pasta. It's a little garlicky tho, so you may want to cut back on the garlic if you don't want it that strong.

      I made this tonight to go with Provencal Vegetable Soup. I've never had pistou before so didn't know whether I'd like it. Well, the verdict's in. I love it. It's delicious!
