Here's a wonderful pesto ~ I loved the combo of various ingredients, but especially the nuts, tomatoes & cheese! I did serve this as a side with some pasta, & then I was surprised that most at the table preferred using it as a dip for corn scoops or as a spread for slices of multigrain bread! VERY, VERY NICE, & thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the Family Picks part of Zaar World Tour 4]
Absolutely delicious! Quick and easy, but tastes so gourmet. We love the tang from the goat cheese and the sun dried tomatoes. It is good over bread, but just wonderful over pasta. I have made this so many times now that I have decided to put it into my best of the year cookbook this year! It is hard to stop eating this stuff.
Made this yesterday to take to my family's house for Mother's Day. It was easy to prepare and was absolutely delicious! It was devoured in no time flat and got rave reviews from everyone. Per other reviewer's suggestions, I served it over toasted garlic mini-baguettes, though I do think it would also be very nice over pasta. I'll try it over the pasta next time. I would definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for posting!
