Delicious! I made a three substitutions based on what I had on hand. Because of a tree nut allergy I used sunflower seeds instead of walnuts, but will either omit the sunflower seeds or significantly cut this next time in the cilantro pesto, as it tasted too strong of sunflower seeds. I'm sure it is better with the walnuts, as the original recipe calls for! I also roasted my own peppers, and used a little garlic instead of the shallot. My husband raved about the red pepper sauce, and said he would have liked this sauce by itself. I preferred the compliment of the cilantro. To save time, I will double the red pepper sauce, and stick some in the freezer for a faster meal on another date. It should freeze really well, although I will make the cilantro pesto fresh. I will definitely make this again soon!
