|Basil and nuts all ready to get transformed!|
For the record, we don't, generally, eat pesto twice a week, but its nice to know I've got the option. Oh, how I enjoy me some pesto (which is funny because I used to hate it)! Last year we ran out of pesto far too early. Thankfully the season of garlic scape pesto comes on earlier than the basil pesto is ready so it all worked out. We planted our garlic over the weekend so we have garlic scape pesto to look forward to again next spring.
We've found through experimentation that pesto is surprisingly good on a variety of things, too: French/garlic bread, roasted veg, corn on or off of the cob, added to marinades, soups, etc. I used to think it was just for pasta! Ha!
|That would be about seven cups of freshly made pesto right there. We again used our silicone cupcake pan to make individual meal sized pucks of frozen pesto. It makes it very easy to store and serve.|
