Yes did not alter anything tasted great,also tried it as a base on pizza also great,it is a keeper I used 3 jalapeno's for the pizza.
Fabulous! Thought maybe the jalapeño might be too spicy or take over but it was actually perfect. This was my first time making pesto without pinenuts. I will do it again. Great recipe Curiouschef. Thanks for sharing!
I made it as the recipe stated and it tasted delicious. It was just spicy enough to taste great!
