    I found this online on a fat free recipe site and tried it... it's slightly different tasting than regular pesto, but pretty good all the same! It substitutes pine nuts for garlic and lemon juice for oil.

    1 Cup basil leaves
    2 Tbsp lemon juice
    2-3 cloves of garlic
    2 Tbsp fat free (ground) parmesan cheese

    I count the cheese as my HEA. I only have reduced fat parmesan and not the fat free as in the recipe.

    I ADORE pesto, and had to go cold turkey when I started SW. Just bought a jar this week for the first time in three years, and still love it every bit as much *YUM!* I've also mized it with quark and a little stock, and it's a gorgeous sauce for fish and veg :) Not baaad syns wise, as long as you don't eat a jar full every few days.... lol
