Terrific! Sorry could not get a photo for you, but will take one next as this is very pretty. This is a wonderful way to show case the best of local goods. Used a nice buttery local made olive oil and beautiful heirloom tomatoes. Both of which were accented to perfection by the pesto sauce. This is one of summers most perfect dishes.
