    This is good I do like it thicker as in recipe #110688 using more nuts! No need to thin it down with the pasta water. Thanks for a delish recipe!

    This was delicious.Very similar to pesto made with pine nuts, just a bit more texture and "nuttier". Made the full recipe and plan to freeze the leftovers for another time.
