Pesto

We tend to make our own pesto because it’s so easy to make at home and it’s so much more flavorful, fresh and rich than store-bought pesto. We definitely recommend trying this out, but if you don’t have so much time on your hands, you can always use store-bought pesto. If you’re using store-bought pesto, then add a cup of mayo to each cup of pesto.
