better w/ a few tweaks for a lighter and, actually, more flavorful pesto, substitute the oil w/ fresh lemon juice and a bit of chicken broth (to your desired consistency). Also, add some red pepper flakes into the mix. For as yummy as the pesto is, I think its full flavor and nuances are somewhat masked by the flavor of the veggies. I made the pesto (w/ the tweaks) and thought it was so good that I decided to give it more of a star role in tonight's dinner.
Excellent!! I made this to accompany lamp chops and my husband and I were both pleasantly surprised. This was such a wonderful way to showcase veggies and the twist on the pesto was so delicious!! The only thing I changed was adding a little fresh ground pepper in when I tossed the roasted veggies and pesto. This is a keeper in our household!!! Pros: Flavorful and easy Cons: NOTHING
