We had this with pasta, and at first thought it was ho-hum, but then my husband had seconds and put a greater proportion of pesto on, and it was much tastier. The pesto is very creamy, and doesn't taste too strongly of broccoli; mostly notes of lemon and garlic and cheese (definitely cook the garlic and pepper in the olive oil first for good flavor!). We topped the pasta/pesto with pine nuts and sprinkles of crushed red pepper. I would make it again, and I plan on using the leftovers as a spread on pizza tomorrow.
