OK so in the past I have mostly been against making pesto since it is half oil, but upon making this one, I realized a few things:
1) it is REALLY GOOD
2) you only use a little in your pasta
3) you can substitute some water for oil, and have a little less rich pesto
Anyway delicious!!! I sauteed some mushrooms and the flowers from the scape and added them into the pasta as well. Based on these results, I think we'll be seeing a lot more pesto around these parts.
