NotesThis recipe is basically from a bakespace member (Susan). I wanted to make a few very slight changes for my own personal taste so I have re-entered this recipe so that I will remember the next time i make it (It would be really cool if there was a place for notes once we've added a recipe to our cookbooks).
Enjoy over pasta. Or to use as a sandwich spread, mix equal amounts of pesto with mayonnaise.
