Scape Pesto

Last week, after displaying my scapes ( God  I love that word) like flowers in a vase, I finally tried to make some pesto- i used the basic formula for pesto ( trading out the basil in traditional Pesto Genovese for the scapes) with a few changes. For one,  no garlic needed- the scapes have that covered.  I used olive oil, pine nuts, parmagiano reggiano, salt & pepper, and a dash of lemon juice to cut the intensity of the scapes.

Delicious- i liked it better than my traditional pesto.

I actually used some leftover scape pesto tonight to flavor a risotto. Yummy!
