    Pesto looks like guacamole.

    Your hand. And then jam that hand into your mouth. It's the final step.

    Mix it well with some good olive oil and use it as a dip for bread. A good bread though.

    I make pesto every three months and freeze batches of it. Then whenever I need it I thaw a packet to repair the crumbling grout in my kitchen floor.

    you can put pesto on just about anything. it helps to think of things if you're really hungry. for instance here's one. a toasted mushroom and carrot sandwich with melted mozzarella cheese on sourdough bread. add pesto and omg yes.

    I can make a great pasta and chicken with pesto, but I've been to restaurants where the pesto was very dull. I find that pesto is at its best when the recipe contains walnuts. I've had pesto with pine nuts and it just wasn't the same. :(

    Pine nuts are the best in pesto, so shut your mouth.

    It's true, you can put pesto on anything. I put it on all kinds of pasta, especially tortellini, but also angel hair, and everything in between. If you want a traditional ligurian pesto pasta you can add potatoes and green beans into your pasta. You can put it as a spread on sandwiches, or just on top of crostini or toast. Use it as a dip for crackers or breadsticks. Put it on a chicken breast or salmon fillet, or any other protein, really. Mix in a little extra oil to thin out the consistency and use it as a salad dressing. Mix it in to the stuffing for baked tomatoes or stuffed peppers. Put it on your scrambled eggs.


    I usually find that it reheats pretty well, the consistency isn't actually affected at all by the freezing process, and you can always doctor it after thawing to make sure it's still edible...
    My mom taught me to freeze it in ice cube trays with a little oil on top, the oil keeps it fresher and the ice cube tray lets you just defrost as much as you need.

    I am now two years older and wiser, and I loooooooooooove pesto.

    Unfortunately, I cannot change my vote, and thus I'm stuck with a reminder of my former ignorance.

    Costco ravioli is the best ravioli because all I have to do is boil a pot of water.

    I love it when I see a thread like this, think of a great reply... And then read that I already made it 2 years ago. Sadly in this case it was a Doobie Brothers reference, so I'm not surprised nobody noticed.
