Outstanding! I halved the recipe and used 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (= 1 clove garlic). I didn't change anything else in the recipe. On its own, the pesto seemed a little too salty, but it's perfect as a condiment. I used 2 tablespoons of this pesto over 2 oz spaghetti and sprinkled with a teaspoon of grated parmesan cheese for a wonderful dinner. Thanks Tish!

SO DELICIOUS! Such a wonderful fresh flavour! Ive been putting it on anything and everything that could do with a little bit of zing. Added some to fresh ricotta and used that on sandwiches, in soups, on boiled eggs. YUM!

I marinated some veggies in this then roasted them for 40 minutes at 475, and they turned out great! I added some fresh rosemary, too.
