What is Pesto?
Pesto is made with basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, salt and Parmesan cheese. It's usually prepared in either a blender or food processor and served over pasta.
You can also serve it over chicken, steak, pork or even mixed into your favorite salad dressing. It's also perfect for appetizers like these Pesto Crescent Rolls Appetizers.
If you are using purchased pesto sauce and it's been sitting in your pantry for awhile, make sure you stir it really well before using it in a recipe.

Besides using pesto with crescent rolls for an appetizer, it is traditional served with pasta. However, it's also great served over grilled chicken, pork or even steak. Spread a little on top of a grilled hamburger as well.
Homemade pesto only lasts a few days in the refrigerator. However, you could freeze it in ice cube trays to preserve it.
