      While I was searching for recipes for pesto sauce, I came across this one. Found out I did not have all the exact ingredients. I used sour cream instead of whipping cream, garlic powder, and precooked shrimp in place of chicken. This was delicious, my husband and his friends loved it. easy to make.

      All gone much too fast, so I sobbed and sniffed like a suburban housewife mourning Princess Diana.
