When this post first started rolling around in my brain, I was just going to post a recipe for Spinach Pistachio Pesto. Then I got to thinking about how I never really make the same pesto twice. Then I started thinking about how I rarely use all the pesto I make for one recipe, I almost always repurpose it. Then I started thinking about how I need to catch up on Kimmy Schmidt, but that’s not really the point.
The point is that this post is going to serve four really awesome purposes: I’m going to break down the formula for making pesto, I’m going to give you a ton of ingredient ideas to make any flavor you want, I’m going to give you 10 delicious ways to use it, then I’m going to give you that Spinach Pistachio Pesto recipe I talked about before. This is going to be a long one, but by the end of it, you’ll have about a million ways to jazz up dinner time. Or lunch. And sometimes even breakfast! But I’m getting ahead of myself here.
