Marinate chicken, pour over spaghetti squash, add to morning eggs, use as a dip with celery and carrot sticks or spoon on freshly sliced tomatoes. Pesto’s fresh ingredients and bountiful flavors make it a diverse but simple recipe that transforms any dish. I love to make it in large batches to have on hand for snacks and a quick meal during a busy week.

Simply Enjoy!
