    Clifford Boren's Note:

    Simple to make and very tasty. You can add a few pinches of dried red chili flakes if you would like it to have a bit more character. Serve with a crisp green salad and a chilled Sauvignon Blanc. Beauty in a bowl!

      Yummy, a good recipe. But a couple comments... you forgot the beans in the directions (I just added w/ tomatoes and onions). Also the nutritional facts are way off due to preparing the pesto according to package directions. You have to use 1/4 c of olive oil which has approx. 480 cal. I just wanted to point that out for other calorie counters. ;-) Thanks for sharing.
