OMG! I bet this tastes so good. I will never for get the very first time I tasted Pesto. I didn't expect to like it at all, but it was amazing. It certainly tastes better than it looks. LOL

It sounds amazing, like, I'd put this on everything, but can I make it without the garlic?
Im fine with garlic, really, but sometimes, pesto is added to sandwiches, and the idea of a garlicy sandwich is...not that kool :/
