This was the best pesto recipe I've seen so far. I went to my local farmer's market to buy the freshest organic ingredients and followed the recipe precisely. My family loved it. I will most definitely make this again. I think the ricotta added a nice texture and flavor. Next time I may refrigerate the blend overnite to enhance the flavor for the following day. Excellent!!
Really tasty esp. after we heated it up again and added (plain) chicken breast chunks. I didn't seed the tomatoes all I could find was dry mint leaves and I also added more ricotta and a lot more parmesan.
I would recommend making this only with homegrown tomatoes as it needs the extra flavour. Like another reviewer I also didn't add the chopped tomatoes to the pesto in the food processor and instead just spooned them on top of the pasta mixed with the pesto. Other recommendations- add fresh or dried oregano for extra flavour use rigatoni instead of linguini as it's easier to stir and eat and add a little extra water to make the pesto mixture more saucy.
I followed this recipe exactly but added pork chops and served with garlic bread. I made the sauce a few hours before hand to let the flavours blend annd I put the sauce over the linguinie in a wok and mixed it up to let the sauce heat up again. I served it to my hubby and a girlfriend who was visiting from out of town and we all agreed that it was lacking some major flavour! I definately reccomend adding much more garlic basil mint salt and pepper as this was quite bland as is! I fully expected "knock your socks off flavour" and it was far from that!
My first time making fresh pesto- loved using fresh herbs. Also used homegrown tomatoes. I liked it the most probably because I got to enjoy the scents as I made it. My husband said it was just okay that it needed more olive oil for flavor (I thought it could use more garlic). BUT the kids wouldn't touch it. I guess is will take them some time to get used to fresh herbs rather than sauce out of a jar.
We enjoyed this recipe very much. A lively & light summer pasta. I used a lighter Bowtie pasta cooked in chicken broth. I was so excited to make it that I used cream cheese rather than going to store for ricotta. I will definitely make this again. Thanks MASTER815K.
