A dab of pea-shoot pesto brings new life to any sandwich.

Cook's Notes

Use this pesto as you would basil pesto. It's delicious on pasta or sandwiches. For easy hors d'oeuvres, spread it onto slices of rustic bread, and top with shaved Parmesan cheese. Or spoon it over soft goat cheese, and serve with baguette rounds.

    Wow - this is way too much Parmesan. It is very salty, without even adding any additional salt and overpowers the delicate pea shoot flavor. I'd recommend leaving out the salt like I did (or salting to taste after) and at least halving the Parmesan. The lime adds a nice flavor though. This recipe is good, but not quite fabulous.
