    Rita~'s Note:

    Lots of flavor! This recipe was made for the RSC contest so that is why different ingredients are used like the soy and Ricotta. I myself would like my pesto Pesto better. And as for the 1/2 teaspoon light soy you don't even know it's there. But if you like go ahead and use salt or just skip it! For the pesto is strong and the veggies need nothing extra.

      This recipe had many good things about it, but Im not sure that I enjoyed the mixture of it. The pesto is very good, but I didnt really like it mixed with the tomato and asparagus with the soy sauce. I felt like it was missing something, and maybe I wouldnt have used the soy sauce. Maybe I'll add some pasta to this next time...and leave out the soy sauce.

      I really enjoyed the pesto in this recipe. I used fresh basil and spearmint and these combined well. It went well with the tomatoes but not quite so well with the asparagus, overwhelming the taste of the asparagus a little. Despite this, it is still an enjoyable dish and it certainly looks pretty on the plate. Very quick and easy to make as well, so it would be worth doing at a BBQ.

      This is really good. Really nice for a change at a BBQ. A nice and sophisticated side dish. It also worked for my lo carb diet. I never had asparagus on the grill and this was really good. The pesto was amazing and I will be using the leftovers on my salad tomorrow. Thanks.
