10 things you didn’t know you could do with pesto

Whether you buy it in a jar or whip it up yourself, pesto is one of the most versatile sauces and adds instant flavour to almost any dish (and we don’t just mean pasta). A classic green pesto recipe is made using basil, Parmesan, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil. Then there’s red pesto, which is flavoured with sundried tomatoes or roasted red peppers. In fact, almost any nut and cheese combination can be created for endless pesto sauce variations – as you’re about to discover.
