pesto butter

Recipe by

My husband was grilling steaks and I wanted to have some flavored butter on them. Instead of mixing several different herbs and spices with the butter, I decided to try the pesto that I already had on hand. We liked it - hope you do, too! (Cook time is actually chilling time.)
