We thought this tasted pretty good, it's just a bit of work lol. Served on whole wheat linguine with Chicken. Since we only used some of the pesto I will be able to try it in some other way in the next few days too. Oh and since I do not like fennel seed we used Cumin instead which is listed as a substitute on a spice site I went to.
