Mealthy Tip

Make pesto in batches and store it in the freezer in small 2 to 4 ounce containers. When you're ready to make this recipe, bring the pesto to room temperature. It's equally delicious spread on sandwiches, used as a pizza sauce or even drizzled onto scrambled eggs!

A good classic pesto recipe. Served this with some lemon pepper shrimp and it worked pretty well together. I did add tons of parmesan cheese to it cause that's normally how I would eat a pesto pasta. A friend of mine suggested adding some cream cheese to it for extra creaminess. I will have to try that next time.

I really enjoyed this fresh pesto pasta dish. I've never made pesto sauce before, but this is much better than store bought. It also goes great with shredded chicken.

This is the only pesto recipe I use. It's perfect every time. Sometimes when I'm craving something rich and creamy I will stir in a little cream cheese at room temperature to the pesto spaghetti until melted. So good!

Love this pesto recipe! I usually make it with zucchini noodles. I also like to squeeze a little lemon juice on top. Perfection.

Really delicious recipe, perfect with toasted pine nuts. Something about the flavor after roasting in the oven, I don't know what it is. Amazing.
