This is a delicious way to serve rosemary and add some flavor to any pasta dish or antipasti platter. This raw pesto uses rosemary instead of traditional basil to create a simple, fresh flavor which is very more-ish. Rosemary is also a beneficial herb for improving memory and brain function. Enjoy.
