    Lorane Abari's Note:

    Pesto sauce is great, but it usually has olive oil, not chicken broth. This recipe substitutes with chicken broth.

      When I made this recipe up, I was not too sure about it....it was very broth-y, BUT when I let it "set up" it was JUST RIGHT !
      I used it in an Antipasto-Style Penne recipe last night and I could not have been more pleased !
      Thank you for sharing this one ! I know I will use it over and over and over !

      Used this recipe to make Shrimp Pesto Pasta. It is such a good low fat alternative to traditional pesto sauce. Lots of flavor without all of the oil. I agree with the other reviewers to add a little less broth so it will be thicker. Next time we're trying it on pizza.

      I roasted the garlic and toasted the pine nuts. I also used less broth- just added it in until I was happy with the consistency. My whole family loved this over cauliflower and requested it again tonight.
