Basil pesto with walnuts, lemon and Wensleydale cheese!
Tom and I had grown tired of living off Christmas leftovers so I hunted through the fridge and found everything I needed to make a lemon & walnut Wensleydale pesto. I was a little unsure about using Wensleydale in pesto but it tasted great with tagliatelle and was exactly what we needed to combat our chocolate comas.
