There was so much red wine and vinegar, I could hardly stand to eat it. Next time I'll put in maybe half of each. Read More

Gross? do you know that is what Pesto is supposed to look like? Omitting the Parmesan cheese is illogical. why? then it isn't pesto = a key ingredient taken out. Understand what you're making. I found this absolutely fantastic & creative. Read More

Very good sauce with Angel Hair pasta! Fairly quick to make and actually has a texture similar to meat sauce. A good vegetarian substitution. Read More

Great recipe...Don't forget you can add cooked, diced chicken or pork; shrimp, clams etc...We like things more garlicky so we use more garlic...If you want to thin it out any, use a little of the pasta cooking water....This can be adapted to so many things Read More

I love this! I had some dehydrated roma tomatoes in my freezer from last summer's harvets. I made a half batch only because my mini-chopper is small. Gross looking buh? That's what pesto looks like! I would hardly call it gross looking. I omitted the canned tomatoes because I didn't feel like opening a can for half of a 1/3 cup. It turned out great. I froze half so I could enjoy pesto and bread later on. I omitted the cheese too because I'm lactose intolerant. Read More
