    threeovens's Note:

    This pesto (translation: from the Italian word, to pound) is more "rustic" and drier than an herb based pesto. It can be used in much the same way and is great sprinkled on roasted vegetables, sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, spread on flatbreads, or stirred into pasta or soup dishes.
