    General consensus was that it wasn’t very tasty.... Maybe because we used more kale than normal or because of the walnuts (other 5* reviewers used something else)

    i modified a bit, i nearly doubled the parmesean and garlic, used italian breadcumbs instead of walnuts and definitely added about a tbsn worth of basil to get a little traditional pesto taste. good way to use my leftover kale tho!

    Tossed the pesto with some zoodles and served it with spicy mussels and shrimp. Yum!

    Really good! Does not taste like kale. I used some of the instructions from another kale pesto recipe. I blanched the kale (boiled it for 3 minutes) because it said that would take away the bitterness. I reduced the olive oil to 3 T. And I added some pasta water so it wouldn’t be as thick. It was even better after it had been sitting in the fridge.
