3 things to do with... pesto

Super quick and delicious pesto ideas.

15 Mar 2011

I do love a dollop of pesto. It comprises of so many of my favourite things; perfumed fresh basil, pungent garlic, golden olive oil and roasty nuts, not forgetting strong, glassy parmesan cheese.

It’s really quite magical stuff, you can gooi it on just about anything and it transforms a dish from boring to fabulous.

You can make it if you’re feeling like a culinary goddess or simply buy a tub and conquer it.
