  • Summary

    As good as it is on the Three-Cheese Veggie Sandwich (page 36), this pesto can be used for lots of other things. Try it over pasta or tossed with vegetables, or throw a few spoonfuls of it into a bowl with salad fixings and use it as a dressing.

    Ingredients

    • ½ cup walnut halves or pieces, toasted
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • ½ cup fresh basil leaves
    • ½ cup fresh parsley leaves
    • ¼ cup whole sun-dried tomatoes
    • ¼ cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
