Rudy's Garlic Scape Pesto Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
great recipe - except the garlic scape flavor was way too strong, so i added spinach and chard (and more cheese, oil, and nuts) to tone down the flavor. it turned out great! i also didn't have pine nuts, so i toasted pecans and walnuts and used them instead.

It's a great recipe, but if you've never cooked with scapes before, you wouldn't know that you need to cut off the white (flowers) from the stems before using it. It made for a very strong pesto. I added basil to my recipe to take some of the bite out of it but I can't seem to tone it down enough for my taste

Fabulous! I did half the olive oil. I got more garlic scapes through my CSA, so I plan to make more to freeze. Yum!

This made just the right amount to freeze in one ice cube tray. I did take out one of the "cubes" before it was frozen and tossed it over some pasta. My 2 yr old ate it, but no one else really cared for it. I've read that it mellows after freezing, so I am hoping we'll like it better if we try it in a few months. I'm giving it 4 stars for the benefit of the doubt. For now, we'll stick with sauteeing our scapes in eggs and veggie stir fries.

So delicious! The recipe was great as written, but I didn't need to add any salt thanks to the parmesan cheese. This was the perfect way to use up all the garlic scapes the CSA gave me!

This stuff is amazing. I recently discovered Garlic Scapes and now prefer this type of pesto to a traditional basil pesto. Because the flavor is so strong, I use less Garlic Scape pesto and a batch of this will last much longer than regular pesto. Since I can only get garlic scapes from the farm in early summer (locally) - I make up a lot and freeze it to use for recipes during the winter. Once you make this - you will not be disappointed!
