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!
Excellent recipe! My dishes usually aren't spicy enough for me but this one is perfect! I used one whole large jalapeno from my garden.I think I'm going to put it on a flatbread with tomato and shaved parm.
This was really really good. I used a mixture of parmesan and asiago cheese and didn't add as much oil, and it turned out great!
