I like to use this Pesto as a marinade on either chicken or fish. but it also has endless uses , like it with pasta and even on sandwiches.

This recipe doesn't make much but it goes a long way.

This Pesto is actually very easy to make and freezes exceptionally well, so you can make a big batch and store it for future use.
