"Lots of flavor! This recipe was made for the RSC contest so that is why different ingredients are used like the soy and Ricotta. I myself would like my pesto Pesto better. And as for the 1/2 teaspoon light soy you don't even know it's there. But if you like go ahead and use salt or just skip it! For the pesto is strong and the veggies need nothing extra."

"This recipe had many good things about it, but Im not sure that I enjoyed the mixture of it. The pesto is very good, but I didnt really like it mixed with the tomato and asparagus with the soy sauce. I felt like it was missing something, and maybe I wouldnt have used the soy sauce. Maybe I'll add some pasta to this next time...and leave out the soy sauce. "
"I really enjoyed the pesto in this recipe. I used fresh basil and spearmint and these combined well. It went well with the tomatoes but not quite so well with the asparagus, overwhelming the taste of the asparagus a little. Despite this, it is still an enjoyable dish and it certainly looks pretty on the plate. Very quick and easy to make as well, so it would be worth doing at a BBQ."
"This is really good. Really nice for a change at a BBQ. A nice and sophisticated side dish. It also worked for my lo carb diet. I never had asparagus on the grill and this was really good. The pesto was amazing and I will be using the leftovers on my salad tomorrow. Thanks."
"I followed the recipe and it was very good. Next time I will try slicing the tomatoes in thick slices. I used basil for the pesto and it was very good. Thank you for creating this recipe. Good luck in the contest."
"I used a mixture of basil and parsley for the pesto, and these turned out great! Even the "pesto hater" in the house agreed that serving the grilled veggies with this pesto was a "good idea". I do not have a food processor (yet), but the blender on high speed worked just fine for blending the ingredients for the pesto. "
"The tomatoes and asparagus were quite good, but we were not too fond of the pesto. I used a combination of basil, parsley and mint,as suggested, it was a mistake. The mixture did not go well with the tomatoes. If I made it again I would use just one of them and not mint. It was a nice idea to grill the tomatoes and asparagus. When we realized the pesto was not to our liking, we sprinkled some parmesan on the rest of them instead, and melted it under the broiler. Sorry about the pesto, I think with just one of the choices, basil, it would probably be ok."
