Sounds very yummy.. it would make a very good side dish... I'd use WW pasta and then add some beans to it maybe and either delete the white sauce.... or else make a healthier white sauce.. without all the creams... Will have to try it and let you know

Also, if you put the ingredients in separately, versus making an actual pesto, you will have a completely new dish but STILL with all those great flavors!
