    Zurie's Note:

    You serve this pesto with a butternut/sweet potato soup with Thai red curry -- or something similar! It's so easy, and yet different! The recipe is by Diane Heierli, and it comes from the Aug 09 issue of the South African "Good Taste" magazine. It's really worth a try! It's not a big recipe -- you're supposed to make it for about 4 servings of a soup.
