Pesto Control

Pesto rules. It's healthy and gives a flavour blast to so many things. Do yourself a favour, and next time you see a big bundle of basil for sale, buy it! Make pesto. Then freeze it. In an ice cube tray. And then thaw a cube next time you're about to eat plain, raw pasta because it's -30 outside and there's no food in your house.
