ground black pepper to taste
Pretty good...a different twist on pesto. Next time I make it I think it will taste good with some lime juice added for a bit of a tang.
a very nice taste...needed a little more evoo and added a little salt to taste.
My friend Matt made this and recommends using another type of nut. He topped chicken with the pesto and baked 1 hr. He reports the pecan tasted too strong for the first few bites, but ended up tasting OK.
