Have to say this is very good, and very simple. Excellent pesto, could use it for anything, but very good with the cheese ravioli! I added a little pasta water to make slightly more of a sauce, but really, excellent, I placed it under the broiler to just bake the top a little. Thank you for sharing, made for PRMR tag game
