Belongs to sissboombah Pesto 

“Traditional pesto is very high fat, unlike this low-fat version. This pesto has a wide variety of uses. Try it tossed with penne pasta, strips of grilled chicken, chopped fresh basil, and golden raisins, topped with chopped tomatoes and a touch of Parmesan and black pepper. It’s also excellent on hot or cold sandwiches.”
