    jennifer in new jersey's Note:

    This recipe comes from "Sauces for Pasta" by Kristie Trabant and Andrea Chesman. It is an interesting variation on the classic pesto which is made with pine nuts or walnuts.

      This is good I do like it thicker as in Pistachio Pesto using more nuts! No need to thin it down with the pasta water. Thanks for a delish recipe!

      This was delicious.Very similar to pesto made with pine nuts, just a bit more texture and "nuttier". Made the full recipe and plan to freeze the leftovers for another time.
