      A nice light flavored pesto. Made as written using walnuts. Served over sliced tomatoes with French bread for a light dinner. Thanks for the post.

      I love it!:) I made two exchanges. I used raw pumpkin seeds as that is what I had in my kitchen and I picked fresh basil from garden instead of dry. Yum, yum.
