Fantastic and rich - I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe which is pretty forgiving even when I altered the ingredients and quantities by leaps and bounds!
For starters, I left out the butter completely because the calorie count was a frightening 600+ I did however use a smidgen of olive oil. Also, I substituted heavy cream completely for milk, and while it turned out to be a very watered down, I multiplied the pesto by 3 so that thickened it up! I also substituted Parmesan cheese for Mozerella - which is not really a good idea because it clumps up instead of dissolving in the sauce, so maybe next time I will stick to Parmesan, heh.
I also started out sautéing some garlic and onions, and later on adding some chilli flakes for some kick. To finish it off I added some cubbed tomatoes to give it some extra zing.
At the end of the day I had this delicious, rich and slightly spicy sauce. Come to think of it, I almost never used any of the ingredients and it felt like I was doing up another recipe of my own but well, I had a great outline to work around!
