    Drazen's Note:

    I have tried many different pesto recipes and tried to combine what I liked most from all of them to create this pesto sauce. I LOVE baked tomatoes with basil and balsalmic vinegar, so that is why I added these three to the recipe. The asparagus was on hand and thought it would bring a nice flavor to the recipe, as well as the scallions.

      I made this just like written. It was just ok to me. I gave it 3 stars, but my family thought it was a 4 star. If I were to make it again, I think I would just use the bottled Classico Basil Pesto. This pesto did not have the flavor I like in the bottled sauce. I always enjoy making new recipes, so thank you for posting.

      The flavors of the veggies and pesto together were terrific! I have been trying to find a sauce to go with wheat pasta and this was it! Thanks for sharing!!
