Delicious take on traditional pesto with a great creamy texture. Perfect with fusilli, bow ties, or hot baked French bread. Serve over grilled chicken too. DELICIOUS!

Delicious.. the creamy texture is wonderful. I used the florets and stems of a whole broccoli since it was going to pureed anyway... cheaper. Now I need to figure out how not to eat all of it as a snack.. would be a nice chip dip or even a spoonful on top of hot soup

Yummy! I used walnuts because it is what I had. Great way to use broccoli stalks!

It was not creamy at all, way too dry and clumpy and had no delicious taste to it. I had to add jarred Alfredo sauce to the mixture to make it somewhat edible!
