This is resturant quality! And I just noticed I forgot the cheese. Ugh! I added mushrooms, garlic, pepper, a litlle season and garlic salt. Next time, I would take out the tomatoes and put zucchini instead of mushrooms. Not big on the tomatoes. The mushrooms got lost in it. I did add more water to make more sauce. Put over pasta but next time I would try over a little rice and double sauce. Or no carbs! The sauce is amazing! This was the first time I have had pesto. Will be making this again. Thanks!!!!
