I made this today and it was GREAT. I didn't have pine nuts, so I used walnuts instead. It's so simple to put together and tastes like it came from a gourmet restaurant. It definately isn't missing a thing, but if you insist on a parmesan style mix-in, nutritional yeast would work great, although I think it's perfect the way it is. I served it tossed with fettucini and slices of a homemade "French Baguette" (from this site). Also, it says it takes 30 minutes, but I had it made in less than 10 minutes.

Yum, the addition of sun-dried tomatoes makes for a very good pesto! I'm not vegan, so I used this pesto on pasta with added parmesan. I also added the zest and juice of a lemon (I like the taste of lemon with pesto). Thanks for the recipe!

Yesterday was my first day trying out the vegan diet. I choose this recipe and love being a vegan thus far! I added a bit of parsley and used walnuts instead of pine nuts. It was delish! I will try to use roasted garlic next time, so the garlic breath doesn't last forever...
