Easy – Delicious – Versatile – Healthy – PESTO! Learn how fast and easy it is to make this classic sauce. Better than store bought and less expensive especially if you have your own basil plants which, I highly recommend. If you don’t have a garden, don’t worry, they grow great in a sunny window.
Once you’ve master the basic pesto recipe, have some fun and try mixing it up a little by swapping out half the basil with cilantro or spinach. You can also try walnuts instead of pine nuts and for an extra pop of flavor try adding some fresh lemon juice or a whole jalapeno! All of these options make it easy to cut costs and work with what you might already have on hand.
The recipe above has a list of great suggestions for using your delicious pesto.
