I was once told that garlic scapes would be the result of onions and leeks getting together and having a baby (with distant garlic relatives). For this reason, I removed the garlic traditionally found in pesto sauces. It is not needed. This recipe has more of a kick so sauce your pasta lightly if serving to kids.
I love this wild and loopy veggie (& girl). I took my wild leek pesto pasta recipe and simply replaced the wild leek with garlic scapes.
