One of my favorite Italian dishes is cheese tortellini with fresh Pesto sauce. If you live in the South of the US, you can grow Basil in abundance. Best with pasta, but also delicious with crackers or baked potato
Italian Basil Pesto
Can be frozen in ice cube trays, remove, then keep frozen in zip lock freezer bag up to 4 month. Remove from freezer individually and use as sauce for pasta or baked potato.
