    We generally make Nigella's "Slime Soup" (pea and parmesan) and I thought this would be a nice alternative. I think it could be improved upon by substituting the pesto for fresh basil and a little stock and maybe sprinkling toasted pine nuts on top.

    I wanted to like this, and it's okay. It definitely is easy to make, but it is totally lacking in... something. I think the prefab pesto muddied up the flavours, which seemed generally flat. It's a good start, but will take some tinkering to make truly delicious.
