"It is possible to obtain that rich, creamy texture and distinctive basil-and-pine nut flavor of pesto by using plenty of fresh basil, low-fat ricotta and yogurt, and a bit of blue cheese. The pale green of the sauce provides a stunning contrast when served over fettuccine and along side a fresh tomato salsa." --CL Reader
