Garden Fresh Basil Pesto

Hi friend!

As promised this time I’m sharing a human recipe! Lol! Garden fresh basil pesto! We love pesto in our house especially in the summer! It’s light and cool and goes on so many things! We eat it with pasta, on chicken and salmon, on sandwiches, and I even like to put it on salads!

There are lots of versions of pesto, but this one is our current favorite! The fact that it’s fresh from our garden probably probably has something to do with that! 😉  The good news is it’s really easy to grow! AND if you make a big batch it preserves really well in the refrigerator or freezer!
