Here are 11 recipes using pesto that will totally transform your meals. Goodbye hummus and tomato sauce, hellooo basil goodness!
I love a good salad, but I equally love a big bowl of pasta or a sandwich on thick, freshly baked ciabatta bread every once in a while. But regular dressings and pasta sauces can kind of get old. I know for me, I often find myself sick of the standard meal sauces like hummus, tomato sauce, and Italian dressing.
So I got really into making homemade pesto, and before I knew it I had a number of recipes on my blog that included it. I am basically now the Homemade Pesto Headquarters.
The great thing about pesto is that it doesn’t require many ingredients, and there are a TON of tasty variations that can be made to it, like using avocado or even carrot tops!
So in case you’re in need of inspiration for that pot of pesto in your fridge, here are some simple recipes using pesto that will get you into the groove. Let’s cook!
