Pesto is normally based on basil but this recipe includes passata, tomato puree and sun dried tomatoes for fabulous flavour and colour.
Used different ingredients. This was great! I added prawn and bowtie pasta and it was definitely a hit! - 29 Sep 2008
Very good sauce with Angel Hair pasta! Fairly quick to make and actually has a texture similar to meat sauce. A good vegetarian substitution. - 29 Sep 2008
