I grew up eating this parsley pesto. It is not as well know as basil pesto but just as tasty. Works well with pasta, poultry, vegetables and rice. You can use walnuts in place of pine nuts

This was wonderful. I used walnuts instead of pine nuts and I stirred in penne pasta, cooked chicken breast and steamed broccoli. It was a great meal. My Dh and I nearly fought over the leftovers. I should have added about a 1/2 cup of the pasta water to the mix to keep it moist.
