"One of my favorite additions to summer seasonings is a good pesto. The classic basic is made with fresh basil, a good quality extra virgin olive oil..., pine nuts, fresh garlic cloves, salt and quality Parmesan cheese. While this classic preparation is a sure thing, I want you to have some other options to spice up your meals from breakfast through dinner."

How do you use pesto? Do you have any favorite variations to share?

Pounds off since December 2009= 30lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.

I've made pesto with almonds or walnuts instead of pine nuts due to the cost. It is one of our favorite ways to enjoy pasta. I'm hoping to get some basil soon to make up a batch! Maybe in our CSA box ......

I make a Mexican style pesto for my southwest kick and to save some money"026 I use cilantro usually 3 bunches, pumpkin seeds without the shell of course, jalapeno cotija cheese , and enough olive oil to give it that nice paste like or you can also use chicken broth to make it healthier! I love grilled chicken mixed with white rice or Spanish rich or even brown rice and to add this pesto to it .. soooo good.
