Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family licked their plates clean! Family licked their plates clean! Served as sauce over chix breast by adding 4-5 spoonfuls of 'pesto romano' to my alfredo sauce recipe using basil leaves from my garden. Really added a boost!! Next time, I'd skip the salt in the recipe as romano cheese has plenty

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this recipe this night. I made this recipe this night. It was delicious. I added an extra clove of garlic and used parmesan romano grated cheese. It was so good that I could have even two dishes, but did not want to make a pig out of myself. I have enough saved for another day.
