Pesto ideas -- non-pasta/low carb

yumyum | Aug 7, 200605:17 PM     34

Over the weekend, I made a big batch of pesto with the gorgeous basil from my farmers' market. Have already had with gemelli, and it's very very good. I'm trying to watch my carb intake and am limiting pasta so I'd appreciate some inspiration on other ways to use up the pesto. I've already thought of chicken salad with pesto, schmear pesto on beefy tomatoes and enjoy as a first course, and obviously, licking it right off the spoon... it's so good. I bet a pesto shrimp salad would be good. Does it go well with fish? I've checked epicurious and I want ideas from you guys.

Thanks.
