Creamy herb paste/sauce perfect for all seasons! Main dish or side dish your guests (and yourself) will love. I made this on a whim when I ran out of basil. In my opinion I like this better than traditional pesto. It's perfect for short pasta shapes. Amount it serves is up to how much you use for your meal.

This is delicious! Due to a severe dairy allergy I substituted vegan cream cheese for the real cream cheese and when I had fresh spices I put those in it instead of dried. I merely did this out of dietary requirements and what I had on hand. I LOVE the bright green color too. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe! Read More
