Presto Pesto

You're all familiar with Basil, yes? My beloved. She survived the fall and grew into a fragrant, luscious little thing. I knew I had to take action because some of her leaves were growing out of control.

The only thing I know is that basil is used to make pesto, so of course that's what I did. I found this recipe for an almost oil free pesto. I did use a different type of cheese rather that parmesan because apparently I can't read labels properly.

I then used the pesto to make pizza! I learned to use naan as pizza crust from my bro and it is delectable. We had a guest coming for dinner and I wasn't sure if he'd like pesto or not, so I used half pizza sauce, half pesto. Next time I'll use all pesto, it was gooood.

Now Basil is nekkid and I have a bunch of pesto leftover. Know anything good to make using pesto?


  1. Oh poor Basil.... He looks so scrawny now!! Will he grow all his leaves back? How long will it take?

  2. Other than putting it on pasta, I have no clue what to do with pesto.
