Garlic scapes

I have a nice bunch of garlic scapes, and was wondering if anyone has some suggestions as far as how they could be cooked/used. We're putting some on pizza tonight but should have some left over.

I slice them thinly and add them (raw) to salad dressing, or to frittata ( http://www.food52.com/recipes... ) -- also, I recently made a garlic scape butter, by combining a stick of butter with a bunch of chopped scapes in a food processor. You could add lemon zest, salt and coarsely ground pepper. I used this butter on toast, on roasted fish, and on fresh peas.

adding them to pesto is another fun way to use them - along with all of the above!

Add to mashed potatoes, salsa, guacamole, stir fry (or any Asian inspired dish) and pasta. Add to cream cheese or sour cream with dill for a spread for vegetables.

Wow, these are all great ideas! I think I'm going to have to buy some more scapes. :)
