Low Fat Pesto Sauce

We love pesto, but most commercial pesto sauces and standard recipes are too high in fat and calories. I found this recipe at http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/sauce/lowfat-pesto-can-it-be-as-good-as-the-real-thing-052654. My husband usually does not like anything new that I try, but he loved this one.Submitted by PJ70F9

Pesto Light

This recipe produced 240g of Pesto.
A heaped tsp weighed 10g, so the recipe produces 24 x 10g servings.
This is enough to dress 45g of wholewheat spaghetti.

Enjoy.Submitted by SCORPIO_STAR

Another weight watcher rehash. they wanted you to use sour dough and i used their wheat bread which brings the points value from 8 to 6. I also personally only use about 1/2 teaspoon pesto on only one side bread.Submitted by HEDDY51

Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser.

Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies.

The pesto is delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta.Submitted by CLOVERSHADE
