Pesto is one of the easiest and most versatile recipes that can come from your spring/summer garden! The star ingredient is basil - that aromatic herb that grows so well next to our tomatoes or even in pots. While pesto is traditional made with sweet basil, there are many varieties of this herb that you could experiment with such as Thai basil or purple basil. And of course, you can scale up the recipe if you have an over abundance of basil. Pesto will keep for a few weeks in the fridge and last for months and months in the freezer!
