This peas pesto was so easy to make, and the flavor was just good, parmesan gave the cheesy and fragrant taste, and good olive oil brought the whole flavor together. Spread it on top of toast, topped with some cherry tomatoes, or marinated mushrooms, artichoke hearts. Very versatile, excellent finger food!
