If you’re looking for a way to add some much needed flavour to your dish, pesto is a winner. It’s oozing with herby flavour and in most cases you’ll only need to add a small amount to unlock its potent powers!
TIP: Do not use too much as the flavour can easily overpower the dish.
Even though it’s quite high in calories and fat (hello olive oil, Parmesan and pine nuts!), it has more nutritional value than most sauces – it’s a good source of vitamins, calcium, iron and protein. If you make it yourself you also have more control over the type of ingredients you use and you can adapt it to make it more suitable for your dietary requirements.
