    Although I have not made this recipe, was wondering if I could use hummus instead of pesto?

    To meanana: Pesto is a green sauce made from fresh basil, parsley, garlic , olive oil, and grated parmesan cheese. It is of Italian origin. If you search on the TOH website, a recipe to make your own will be at the top of the list. It tastes very strongly of fresh basil, which I love.

    I have not tried to make this yet, although it sounds good. I'm wondering what is the 'pesto' made of?
