Pesto Sauce


In addition to using as a sauce for pasta, this may be spread on broiled meats or chicken, added to soups for extra flavor, or used as a seasoning for salad dressing. A little may be combined with mayonnaise for a vegetable dip; or serve over steamed fresh vegetables or new potatoes.



  1. Puree all ingredients in a blender or food processor. If a food processor is used, as little oil as possible should be used — no more than 1/2 cup.
  2. Put sauce into jars, pour a light film of oil on top, and cover with lids. Leave a small space between the top of the oil and the lids if the jars are to be frozen.
  3.  Refrigerate up to 2 months, or freeze up to 1 year.
  4. Serve with lightly buttered, freshly cooked pasta.
