    Kathy228's Note:

    A delicious, easy to make pesto sauce. The addition of salt isn't necessary as the Parmesan adds enough salty taste.

      This recipe is delicious! My husband is not a pesto fan and he agreed; this is a must make! With our fresh garden tomatoes this was fantastic! Another suggestion: roast or grill potatoes, then toss in this pesto sauce. You will NOT be disappointed.

      Totally different proportions than basil pesto I'm familiar with but I really enjoyed this one. I used it on Herbed Red Potatoes and Baby Green Beans #104631. The use of water is a clever, almost unnoticeable way to lower the caloric value. I didn't have any left over to freeze; what a shame. Recommend you make a full recipe, not half as I did.
