I made this today and it was GREAT. I didn't have pine nuts, so I used walnuts instead. It's so simple to put together and tastes like it came from a gourmet restaurant. It definately isn't missing a thing, but if you insist on a parmesan style mix-in, nutritional yeast would work great, although I think it's perfect the way it is. I served it tossed with fettucini and slices of a homemade "French Baguette" (from this site). Also, it says it takes 30 minutes, but I had it made in less than 10 minutes.

Yum, the addition of sun-dried tomatoes makes for a very good pesto! I'm not vegan, so I used this pesto on pasta with added parmesan. I also added the zest and juice of a lemon (I like the taste of lemon with pesto). Thanks for the recipe!

Yesterday was my first day trying out the vegan diet. I choose this recipe and love being a vegan thus far! I added a bit of parsley and used walnuts instead of pine nuts. It was delish! I will try to use roasted garlic next time, so the garlic breath doesn't last forever...

This pesto was so yummy!!! And extremely easy to make. I mixed the pesto with some whole wheat pasta, topped it with chopped parsley and toasted pine!!!

My family and I loved this recipe. The sun-dried tomatoes make this a unique and distinctive pesto. Plus, it's vegan!

This was easy and excellent. My husband and two young boys loved this (to my surprise!). One of my sons is gluten, casein, and soy free, so this meal worked perfect for him. He actually asked when we could have it again. Made it exactly how recipe stated. It has a mild flavor, which worked well for us because of the kids. Will make extra next time for freezing!

This is also very good with walnuts instead of pine nuts - they blend really well with the rest of the flavors

I added parmesan and left out the garlic (so that it would last longer in the fridge). Delicious and fresh tasting!
