pesto...

Have you tried this??? I've been wanting to try my hand at homemade pesto for a while, but my friend/neighbor introduced me to this little baby & I see no reason to make my own. It is fabulous with multi grain crackers (also from Costco), or...

...mix it in with pasta, add a little grated parmesan cheese (NOT the kind in the green can...) and dive in. This is seriously goooood!


Pesto can be a little rich, and has a quick expiration date because of the fresh basil, so if you don't think you will use it all up before then just freeze half for later (a little olive oil drizzled over the top before freezing helps retain the color.)

Oooooh I love a good pesto! I'll have to try it.
I can't improve on Marie Calendar's quiche, which is why we had it for brunch. Not like I would even try.

perhaps you'll lend me 1/4 a cup so I can try it and then buy it???

I do love this stuff too - and thank you for the tip about freezing it (and the drizzle of Olive Oil) - YUM!

I can't wait to try this! I love pesto and have never attempted making it. My dear friend, Rosalia, made the best!
