This spring bright green sauce is wonderful with anything.
Don’t limit yourself to just the pasta. This goes great with meats, fish, BBQs, roasted vegetables, in sandwiches over dipes…. It is great as a base to pizzas instead of the Tomato sauce, especially if topped with grilled chicken strips, mushrooms and Parmesan cheese. This makes for an amazing green pizza, full packed with freshness and great flavours – a change from the regular tomato sauce-based pizzas. Pesto is also great as a snack with some cherry tomatoes, roasted or fresh. Try it with rice cakes for an extra healthy snack. Pesto can also be used as dip for cocktail parties, with olive, cherry tomatoes and baby buffalo mozzarella rounds, Grana Padano cubes…. This sauce is also good to dress salads… There is really no limit to what you can do with Pesto.
This recipe will make enough to chill or freeze for another time. Instructions for canning are also included here 🙂
